Abstract

Chondroid syringoma (CS) of the orbit is an extremely rare benign neoplasm. To the best of our knowledege, this is the second case reported in the english litérature.We report a case of a 41-year-old woman with orbital CS. This tumor developed slowly over 8 years causing indolor, no axil, exophtalmos of the left eye. Computed tomography demonstrated an isodense intraorbital tumor with homogeneous enhancement without bony erosion. On Magnetic resonance imaging the tumor was isointense on T1-weighted imaging, slightly hyper intense on T2-weighted imaging, and enhanced after Gadolinium administration. The patient was operated via left lateral orbitotomy. At surgery the mass was well circumscribed, extraconal, very firm and did not invade or adhere to other structures. The tumor was removed in toto. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination, the lesion was nodular, and there was differentiation toward the adnexal ductal epithelium with chondromyxoid and adipocytic differentiation in the stroma. No recurrence was seen with one year follow-up.CS should be included in the differential diagnosis of intra-orbital tumors. Complete resection remains the best therapeutic option to prevent recurrence. Close followup is recommended because malignant transformation, although rare, is possible.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 April 2014.
All research outputs
#3,060,417
of 4,507,509 outputs
Outputs from Head & Face Medicine
#81
of 137 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#72,657
of 107,102 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Head & Face Medicine
#6
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,509 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 137 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.5. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 107,102 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
