A 71 year-old male presents with a variably pigmented and growing caruncular tumor. Subconjunctival melanocytic cysts were noted (arrows).
Hidrocystoma of the Caruncle
*Note* Due to progressive growth, hypervascularity, and subconjunctival pigmentation, this tumor was treated by excisional biopsy.
In this case hidrocystoma of the caruncle was suspected by clinical examination. High frequency ultrasound supported this diagnosis. Due to the presence of subconjunctival pigmentation and history of growth, an excisional biopsy was requested and performed. This case demonstrates the utility of high frequency ultrasound in the evaluation of the caruncle.
"Dr. Finger is AWESOME!! We have really appreciated his wonderful caring treatment with him. And also the support he gives. Most of all - the fact that he calls you back himself, not a one of the staff. But, his staff has been great as well!!"
