  • K. M. Thomas (a1), V. L. Cumberworth (a1) and J. McEwan (a1)

Abstract

We report the previously undocumented development of an orbital metastasis and skin metastases in a patient with polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA) 15 years after initial presentation. The clinical course, treatment and changing histological features are discussed.
