ABSTRACT

Pediatrics malignancies are not uncommon in Nigeria and like all other childhood malignancies, differ biologically from their adult counterparts. The aim of this review is to highlight the age, sex and morphological characteristics of orbito-ocular malignancies in Makurdi, North Center Nigeria. A retrospective review of all orbito-ocular specimens received in the department of Anatomic Pathology of Benue State University Teaching Hospital, Makurdi Nigeria between September, 2012 and December 2013. Clinical data obtained included sex, age and histological type. Fourteen (14) children were seen. Retinoblastoma 7(50%) was the most common pediatrics orbito-ocular malignancy with an average age of occurrence of 3.89 years and male preponderance of 1.7:1. Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma was the second most common pediatric cause of orbito-ocular malignancy with 5(36%) cases and an average age of 6 years and a female preponderance of 4:1. One (1) case of small round blue cell tumor was found in a 10 year old male patient. The average age of pediatric orbito-ocular malignancies in Makurdi are relatively high and maybe a result of late presentation. There is a need to improve on awareness with further work into their clinical behavior and management, coupled with increase accessibility of the patient to different management modality.
