Congenital intrascleral cyst.

Akbaba M, Hacıyakupoğlu G, Uğuz A, Karslıoğlu S, Karcıoğlu Z - Clin Ophthalmol (2011)

Bottom Line: The lesion enlarged over the following months but did not involve the cornea.The histopathology revealed a scleral cyst wall lined by nonkeratinizing squamous epithelium with no goblet cells.We conclude that congenital intrascleral epithelial cysts are rare but should be considered in differential diagnosis of external eye cystic lesions.

ABSTRACT
Congenital intrascleral cysts are rare. They are mostly located at the limbus with corneal involvement. We report a case of a 30-month-old boy with a bulber conjunctival cyst noticed at birth. The lesion enlarged over the following months but did not involve the cornea. During surgery the cyst proved to be intrascleral and a complete excision was carried out. The remaining defect was repaired with banked fascia lata. The histopathology revealed a scleral cyst wall lined by nonkeratinizing squamous epithelium with no goblet cells. We conclude that congenital intrascleral epithelial cysts are rare but should be considered in differential diagnosis of external eye cystic lesions. In our case, early excision and repair with fascia lata led to an uncomplicated postoperative course of 6 years.

Mentions: A 30-month-old boy presented to the clinic with a bulbar subconjunctival cystic mass of the right eye (Figure 1A). The lesion was present at birth and had been gradually enlarging for 1 year. Delivery was uneventful and there was no history of ocular trauma or amniosynthesis.
