Abstract

Purpose: To report the characteristic features of pleomorphic adenoma of the lacrimal gland with later recurrence or transformation into malignancy. Cases and Method: This study was made on 41 cases of pleomorphic adenoma of the lacrimal gland. Results: The age ranged from 16 to 83 years, average 49 years. There were 6 cases who developed recurrence of benign tumor. The age averaged 39.7 years. There were 3 cases who developed recurrence of malignant tumor. The age averaged 24.3 years. Cases of recurrence of benign or malignant tumor were characterized by younger age of onset than cases with no recurrence. Cases with no recurrence were more frequent among females at the ratio of 1:2. Cases with recurrence of malignant tumor were more frequent among males at the ratio of 2:1. Conclusion: Males and young persons have a greater risk of recurrence of benign or malignancy after surgery for pleomorphic adenoma of the lacrimal gland.
