A Clinical Case from the Archives : 07/10/2005

This circus horse is presented with a two week history of eye problems. My feeling is that this has been going on for a fair bit longer but what can you see as the problem(s) here? What woud you do about them?

There is a mass on the lower eyelid that is most probably a sarcoid while the third eyelid lesion is almost certainly a squamous cell carcinoma. We resected them both but I must say that the prognosis for the squamous cell carcinoma is not good as the surgical margins were poor. Cryotherapy or brachytherapy can be useful in lowering the liklihood of recurrence.
