Panophthalmitis (H&E 2X)

For submission of enucleation specimens: include history, ophthalmic exam findings, results of other laboratory testing if pertinent, and clinical differential diagnosis. This is particularly important as it may influence how the globe is sectioned and what sections are examined.  Unless the lesion submitted for evaluation includes or is limited to the eyelids or other periocular tissues, these should be removed prior to placing the globe in formalin in order to allow optimal fixation.  If eyelids and periocular tissue are not removed, eyelid sutures should be removed to allow formalin to more readily perfuse the globe.
