Abstract

PURPOSE: To report the clinical and histopathological features of two patients with caruncular and pericaruncular sebaceous gland hyperplasia (SGH) with a literature review. METHODS: We performed a retrospective pathology database search of 1195 ophthalmic specimens receiving the clinical diagnosis of SGH for caruncular/pericaruncular lesions during 2004 to 2014 at Tokyo Dental College, Ichikawa General Hospital. Paraffin sections were stained with hematoxylin and eosin. A retrospective patient record and literature review was also performed. RESULTS: Database search disclosed 2 male patients with SGH of 1195 specimens (0.15%). Pathological specimens revealed neither any cellular/nuclear atypia nor any mitotic figures and invasive features. No recurrences were observed in these 2 cases 12 to 18 months after excision. CONCLUSIONS: Caruncle and pericaruncular SGH is an uncommon lesion which needs careful histopathological evaluation for differentiation especially from caruncular neoplasias.
