Gland of Zeis expression

The Rodney Dangerfield of glands … “they don’t get no respect!” The #glands of #Zeis are the much less “respected” glands in the eyelid but have important function providing lubricant to the eyelash and lid margin. These sebaceous glands are located on the margin of the eyelid and, similar to the “highly regarded”#meibomianglands, can become infected to form #styes. These styes often co-exist with #chalazions and internal #hordeolums.

The Zeis glands can transform into #sebaceouscarcinoma which is a rare, highly malignant, and potentially lethal #tumor.
