Introduction

  • The histopathologic examination of samples taken from soft tissue lesions involving the eye is a very important part of the complete ophthalmic examination and are mandatory if neoplasia is suspected.
  • The histopathologic diagnosis is essential to determine the treatment and prognosis of any neoplastic lesion.
  • Particularly suited to investigation are lesions involving the eyelids, conjunctiva, third eyelid, cornea or sclera.
  • Topical, local and general anesthesia may be required depending on the individual case.
