Orbital Epithelial Implantation Cyst Presenting 40 Years after Orbital Trauma
Abstract: Here we present an unusual case of an epithelial implantation cyst within the orbit which presented 40 years after initial injury from an airgun pellet. A retrospective review of the case was performed. This case highlights the importance of taking a thorough history when assessing adnexal lesions of undetermined origin.
