Abstract

RAYES, Assad et al. Tarsal Fibroma. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2016, vol.75, n.6, pp.484-486. ISSN 0034-7280.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5935/0034-7280.20160098.

The objective of the authors is to report the case of a tarsal fibroma, a tumoration on the superotemporal side of the right orbit with slow growth over the years. Analysis of the anatomical specimen obtained from the tarsal region showed a well-defined lesion, consisting of deposition of dense collagen fibers, with fusiform cells without atypia, with coating conjunctival cells, featuring fibroma of the tarsal plate.

Keywords : Fibroma; Orbital diseases; Eyelids; Eyelid neoplasms; Case reports.
