Focal Points 2020 Module: Ocular Surface Tumors

Focal Points 2020 Module: Ocular Surface Tumors

Ocular surface tumors usually manifest with complaints of eye redness or mass, but sometimes are found incidentally. While some lesions are benign, early identification of malignancy is important to ensure adequate clinical outcomes and timely treatment.

This Focal Points module reviews the most prevalent tumors and their risk factors, clinical characteristics, and indicated workup. An overview of the use of high-resolution optical coherence tomography (HR-OCT) in diagnosis and management of ocular surface tumors as well as the latest improvements in tumor management is also presented.

Ocular surface tumor evaluation techniques, predisposing factors and personal and family history of skin malignancies, immunodeficiency, and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection are also covered.

By completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the natural history of the most common ocular surface tumors and recognize their risk factors, clinical characteristics, and indicated workup.
  • Identify on high-resolution optical coherence tomography key diagnostic findings that aid in the diagnosis of ocular surface tumors.
  • Discuss supporting evidence for currently available and recently developed treatment modalities and their clinical applications.
  • Summarize the latest developments in tumor genetics and their clinical impact.
  • Identify the recurrence rates of the different treatment approaches and the need for posttreatment clinical and imaging monitoring.
