NARIKAWA, Silvia; MARQUES, Mariângela Esther Alencar  and  SCHELLINI, Silvana Artioli. Eyelid tumor in anophthalmic socket due to retinoblastoma: report of two cases. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2011, vol.74, n.5, pp.365-367. ISSN 0004-2749.

Retinoblastoma is a unilateral or bilateral intraocular tumor, occurring as a hereditary or sporadic tumor. Another not ocular lesion is a possibility for retinoblastoma carriers. The authors report the cases of two patients: a son with bilateral anophthalmic socket due to retinoblastoma, who presented unilateral upper eyelid tumor; and his father with unilateral anophthalmic socket secondary to enucleation due to retinoblastoma and a tumor growing fast in the upper eyelid at the same side of the anophthalmic cavity. Lesions were diagnosed as sebaceous carcinoma confirmed by immunohistochemical exam. Both patients had the eyelid tumors removed, with good resolution. None of them have presented either signs of recurrence or metastasis.
