Medulloepithelioma (diktyoma) presenting as a perforated, infected eye.
  1. M. A. Virji


    A case of embryonal medulloepithelioma (diktyoma) presenting with perforated infected eye in a 13-year-old Black African girl is described. The tumour mass occupied most of the deformed eye, and invasion of the sclera anteriorly was seen. There was no evidence of orbital or distant tumour involvement. It is suggested that with increasing age these tumours are more likely to show frankly malignant features.
