Ectopic lacrimal gland tissue. Report of eight cases with orbital involvement

, : Ectopic lacrimal gland tissue. Report of eight cases with orbital involvement. Archives of Ophthalmology 78(3): 318-327

All of the cases coded as aberrant or ectopic lacrimal gland at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology were reexamined, and observations on 35 are reported. The cornea was involved in 10 of the 18 cases in which the choristo-matous tissue was present in the bulbar conjunctiva. Ectopic lacrimal gland tissue was present within the eye in one case and was felt to be the cause of a unilateral exophthalmos in 8 cases in which the inflamed ectopically placed tissue was found deep in the orbit.
