  • To investigate the expression of cancer stem cell (CSC) marker proteins in eyelid sebaceous gland carcinoma and evaluate the clinical significance. (arvojournals.org)
  • Archival tissue blocks from 50 cases of eyelid sebaceous gland carcinoma were tested via immunohistochemistry for 16 putative CSC markers. (arvojournals.org)
  • Development of metastasis in eyelid sebaceous gland carcinoma might be attributed to increased number of CSCs or acquisition of dedifferentiated phenotype. (arvojournals.org)
  • Our findings suggest that CSCs are involved in the disease progression of eyelid sebaceous gland carcinoma, and in particular, expression of ALDH1 is a predictor of a poor outcome. (arvojournals.org)
  • Other related conditions on the eyelids include chalazion ( a granulomatous reaction to sebaceous glands on the eyelid), lacrimal duct cysts (cysts related to tear ducts) and nasolacrimal duct cysts (the nasolacrimal duct drains tears into the nose via a punctum on the lower eyelid).
