Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Oncocytoma is an uncommon, relatively benign tumor, composed of transformed epithelial cells of the ducts. We report a case of oncocytoma of the caruncle.

METHODS:

Case report.

RESULTS:

A 51-year-old woman with a 2 years history of a mass located in the caruncle of her right eye was presented. Surgical excision was then performed, and the histological diagnosis of oncocytoma was established.

CONCLUSION:

The oncocytoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a caruncular mass in elderly people, particularly in female patients.
