- This symposium on ocular tumors in children will cover benign and malignant ophthalmic tumors that are most frequently observed in children. Conjunctival tumors in children are essentially benign lesions. They include nevi, papillomas, congenital choristomas, histiocytofibromas and inflammatory lesions. Orbital tumors in children are also predominantly benign but in case of a rapid exophthalmia, one should rule out the possibility of malignancies like rhabdomyosarcomas or metastatic neuroblastomas. These malignant lesions need urgent care. Tumors linked to phakomatosis include orbital disease observed in neurofibromatosis, ocular disease in von Hippel Lindau, Sturge Weber diseases, and Bourneville sclerosis. Retinoblastoma is the most frequent intraocular malignant tumor in children. Genetic aspects will be described as well as diagnosis and therapeutic guidelines. Rare intraocular tumors in children are uveal melanomas , leiomyomas and medulloepitheliomas.
