Eyelid neoplasms of dogs.


A survey of 202 canine eyelid neoplasms was conducted to identify the prevalence of tumor types and their biological behavior. Sebaceous gland tumors, melanomas, and papillomas made up 82.1% on neoplasms studied. Sebaceous tumors were most frequently encountered, comprising 44% of canine eyelid tumors. Benign tumors (75.3%) were more prevalent than malignant forms (26.7%), and epithelium tumors outnumbered those of mesenchymal origin 134 to 23. A slightly higher percentage of neoplasms were removed from upper eyelids (40.2%) than from lower eyelids (30.2%). The average age of dogs with eyelid tumors was 8 years. Malignant tumors were comparatively larger than benign forms, but metastasis of eyelid tumors was not observed.
