Giant Hidrocystoma of the Orbit Presenting with Inversion and Ptosis of the Upper Eyelid

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

A case of giant hidrocystoma of the orbit in a 57-year-old female causing pain, epiphora and ptosis is reported. The cystic mass was totally excised as a whole. Histopathologic examination revealed eccrine hidrocystoma of the orbit. Hidrocystoma must be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with periocular masses causing pain and ptosis.

No MeSH data available.

Mentions: A 57-year-old female admitted to our clinic with massive upper eyelid swelling and severe pain. On examination, eyelid and eyelash ptosis was observed due to the mechanical effect of a palpable soft, mobile mass located in the anterior orbit (Figure 1A). Inversion of eyelashes resulted, with large central corneal epithelial erosion causing irritation and epiphora. The left eye was displaced inferiorly and downgaze was partially restricted. Best corrected visual acuity was 0.5 in the affected eye. All other ophthalmologic findings were within normal limits in both eyes.
