Slitlamp photograph of a 70-year-old white man who developed a superficial growth of the right cornea during 1 month. He had no previous ophthalmic or relevant medical history and denied any prior surgery, trauma, or infection. The lesion was removed by superficial keratectomy, and the underlying Bowman layer remained intact.
Light microscopy of corneal myxoma. Histologically, the lesion consisted of spindle-shaped cells within a loose myxoid stroma. The spindle cells were negative for smooth-muscle actin and Congo red. The findings were consistent with a diagnosis of primary corneal myxoma. A, Hematoxylin-eosin; original magnification ×200. B, Periodic acid–Schiff; original magnification ×200.
