Extract

Figure 1.

A 55-year-old woman presented with an ill-defined mass (arrows) of the left lower eyelid fornix associated with excessive tearing and mattering for 5 weeks. Magnetic resonance imaging of the orbits revealed soft tissue swelling. The mass was excised and histologically diagnosed as a lower eyelid leiomyoma.

Figure 2.

A, Microscopic examination demonstrates conjunctival tissue with an area of haphazard smooth muscle bundles (hematoxylin-eosin, original magnification ×40). B, Higher magnification reveals fascicles composed of fusiform cells with cigar-shaped end nuclei (arrow) (hematoxylin-eosin, original magnification ×400). C, Cytoplasmic staining with muscle-specific actin immunohistochemistry stain is observed (original magnification ×400).
