ABSTRACT

Orbito-ocular malignancies represent a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in Africa. This work set as its objectives as analysis of 38 histologically confirmed malignant tumor of the eye and adnexae in Makurdi, Benue State in North central Nigeria using laboratory bench book of the department of Anatomic Pathology, Benue state University Teaching Hospital, Makurdi, Benue State Nigeria between September and December, 2019. Sixty specimen were from eye and its adnexae and only 38 (63%) were orbito-ocular malignancies. The male:female was 1:1 with a peak age of incidence in the first decade and age range of 1 month to 85yrs. Squamous cell carcinoma accounted for 21 cases (55%), retinoblastoma 8 (21%) and embryonal rhabdomyocarcoma 5 (13%) were the most common malignancies. No case of lacrimal gland malignancy was seen agreeing with its rarity. Orbito-ocular malignances are not uncommon in Benue State of Nigeria. There seem to be an upsurge in the incidents of squamous cell carcinoma of the eye and adnexae region. This may be a reflection of the high incidence and high prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS in this environment. There is an urgent need for awareness to ensure early presentation.
