Corneal Myxoma: PDF Only

Myxoma of the cornea is extremely rare. To our knowledge, only two cases have been reported in the literature. We report an additional case of a corneal myxomatous lesion that presented as a subepithelial, gelatinous, and whitish mass. Histologic examination revealed a loose mucoid stroma, rich in hyaluronic acid, with a relative paucity of cells.
