Abstract

Eighty seven cases of ocular adnexal tumors were excised and studied histologically between January 1, 1967 and March 31,1974 at Department of Ophthalmology, Dong San Presbyterian Medical Center. The incidence of ocular adnexal tumors among 22,420 out-patients was 0.38%. The Sexual distribution revealed 49 males (56.3%) and 38 females (43.7%). The benign tumors were more frequent in 2nd and 3rd decades, but the malignant tumors, on the other hand, after 5th decade. Location-wise, the eye-lid was largest in number (38 cases, 43.7%) followed by the conjunctiva (24 cases, 27.6%), orbit (23 cases, 26.4%) and lacrmal apparatus (2 cases, 2.3%) in order. As asingle disease, the nevus, pseudotumor and malignant melanoma were impressively high in incidence. Over all incidence of malignant tumors was 31% (27 cases) and that of benign tumors 69% (60 cases). Of malignant tumors the eye lid tumors were largest in number (12 cases), the orbit 9 cases and conjunctiva 6 cases.
