Survey of 520 eyes with uveal metastases.
The choroid is the most common site for uveal metastases, and the tumors occur most often in the posterior pole of the eye with an average of two tumors per eye. Expand
Sebaceous carcinoma of the ocular region: a review.
Sebaceous carcinoma of the ocular region is a malignant neoplasm that is being recognized more frequently and managed by innovative techniques of local resection, cryotherapy, topical chemotherapy,Expand
Tumors of the conjunctiva and cornea.
Clinical description and illustration of the many conjunctival and corneal tumors are provided and tumor management is discussed and the most frequent nonmelanocytic neoplastic lesions include squamous cell carcinoma and lymphoma, both of which have typical features appreciated on clinical examination.

Classification and management of Coats disease: the 2000 Proctor Lecture.
Carefully selected treatment can anatomically stabilize or improve the eye with Coats disease in 76% of eyes, however, poor visual outcome of 20/200 or worse commonly results, and patients with stages 4 and 5 have a poor visual prognosis. Expand

The technique of initial surgery was shown to be an important factor in preventing eventual tumor recurrence, metastasis, and death, and patients who were managed with excisional biopsy using the "no-touch technique" plus alcohol corneal epitheliectomy and supplemental cryotherapy fared far better than those treated with excisonalBiopsy alone.

Cancer Metastatic to the Orbit: The 2000 Robert M. Curts Lecture
The most common primary cancers that metastasize to the orbit are breast, prostate gland, and lung cancer and the systemic prognosis is generally poor. Expand
Sebaceous carcinoma of the eyelids: personal experience with 60 cases.
Despite the fact that the clinical features of sebaceous carcinoma have been widely reported, the diagnosis was suspected initially in only 32% of patients at first examination elsewhere and in only 50% at histopathologic examination elsewhere. Expand
Vasoproliferative tumors of the ocular fundus. Classification and clinical manifestations in 103 patients.
Vasoproliferative retinal tumors can be idiopathic, or they can develop secondary to congenital, inflammatory, vascular, traumatic, dystrophic, and degenerative ocular diseases. Expand
Metastatic tumors to the iris in 40 patients.
Iris metastasis can show a spectrum of clinical variations, but its features are generally distinctive enough to differentiate it from other intraocular neoplasms and inflammations. Expand
Uveal metastasis from breast cancer in 264 patients.
Local ocular tumor control was excellent with current therapies, however, systemic prognosis for all patients, including those who had been treated with different management options, was poor with survival rates of 65% at 1-year and 24% at 5-year follow-up. Expand
