Eyelid Tumors: Clinical Aspects of Ophthalmic Pathology.

CONCLUSION: Lid tumors can develop from different structures of the eyelid and, therefore, show a wide spectrum of clinical findings. If a malignant process is suspected or the clinical diagnosis cannot be unequivocally determined, a biopsy (incisional vs. excisional) is necessary followed by histologic evaluation. Furthermore, inadequately treated benign lesions, such as an incomplete excised nevus or a molluscum contagiosum, can lead to serious problems. PMID: 29996160 [PubMed - in process]

We report a case of an eyelid molluscum contagiosum in a 5-year-old boy with no risk factors and a 2-week history of a large localized ulcerating mass of the left upper eyelid. The mass was totally excised, and diagnosis of molluscum contagiosum was confirmed in the histopathology study. Microscopic examination revealed enlarged keratinocytes, and acquired eosinophilic Henderson-Patterson inclusion bodies were also detected. Such ulcerating solitary lesions can be misdiagnosed as infected epidermal cysts, keratoacanthoma, or infected chalazions; therefore, molluscum contagiosum should be considered in the differential diag...

This article provides an update on treatment options for molluscum contagiosum, with a particular focus on immunocompetent pediatric patients.ResumenEl molusco contagioso es una de las infecciones virales más frecuente en los niños. Aunque se trata de una infección de curso benigno y generalmente autolimitada, el tratamiento puede resultar complicado en la edad pediátrica cuando las lesiones son muy numerosas, están en áreas visibles, o producen molestias. Existen diversos tratamientos disponibles, cuya selección depende del número y localización de las lesione...
