Abstract

Three patients with Meibomian gland carcinoma were treated initially with irradiation. This therapy was palliative in one case that eventually required orbital exenteration because of recurrent disease. A second patient was clinically tumor-free ten months after treatment when he died of a myocardial infarction. The third patient has shown no evidence of recurrent disease in the 25 months since treatment.
