Abstract

In our study we have taken into consideration the use of ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) in a case of orbital-blepharal lymphoma. The advantages of this methodology, which is considered a refinement of B scan ultrasonography, compared with other instruments at present available on the market, have been described. We have tried to show how the instrument for biomicroscopic ultrasonography makes it possible to obtain images of the anterior segment of the eye in every detail; it is, therefore, capable of giving us information once only available by means of examining histopathological sections. Apart from the advantages, in this work we have also described the limits of this methodology, which in order to allow an accurate diagnosis must always be accompanied by the traditional ocular echography.
