International Journal of Ophthalmic Pathology focuses on the topics include, but not limited to: Neuro-Ophthalmology, Orthoptics, Diseases of the Eye, Ophthalmic surgery Cataract.
The Journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems.

A Case Report: Extranodal Marginal Zone Lymphoma of the Eyelid
This is a case report of a 79-year-old Filipino woman who suffered from an extremely rare Extranodal Marginal Zone Lymphoma of her lower eyelid. The patient’s pertinent medical history, presentation,diagnosis, and treatment are described. The complete eye examination and photographic documentation are also included in our report.
We report a unique case of a silicone rubber scleral buckle implant simulating a conjunctival tumor. The patient had remote scleral buckling procedure for a retinal detachment and subsequent removal secondary to implant extrusion. Slit lamp examination revealed a large conjunctival mass with a papillomatous surface and overlying corkscrew vessels. Radiologic imaging revealed a septated fluid collection corresponding with the lesion.
We report a very rare case of unilateral congenital orbital teratoma with marked proptosis presenting at birth. Clinical examination and histopathology reports showed the tumor to be confined to the orbit. Considering the size and extent of tumour, an exenteration was done under general anaesthesia.
Exophthalmia as a First Manifestation of Epitheliod Hemangioma
A 25-year-old man had a three-month history of a slowly progressive exophthalmos of the left eye, fluctuating swelling of the eyelids, and diplopia. We evaluated the exophthalmos using CT and MRI, and performed excisional biopsy and pathologic examination. Histopathological findings were compatible with a diagnosis of epithelioid hemangioma. The main differential diagnosis is Kimura disease but EH is not associated with systemic manifestation. Systemic steroid administration has been used with success. Regular follow up was performed and no evidence of recurrence was observed.
Ocular Non-pigmented Ciliary Adenomatous Neoplasm:Report of a Rare Case and Review of the Clinicopathologic Classification
A 27-year-old man presented with a phthisical left eye. Physical and radiologic examinations revealed an intraocular non-pigmented mass that occupied the anterior chamber. The patient underwent an uneventful left eye enucleation. Histopathologic examination revealed a non-pigmented adenomatous ciliary epithelial neoplasm. Three years after surgery, the patient is alive and well. Here, we discuss the histopathologic features in the context of the clinical behavior of ocular non-pigmented ciliary adenomatous neoplasms.
