Abstract

Purpose : To evaluate smoking and alcohol use as risk factors for higher grade dysplasia in a population of patients with histopathologically proven ocular surface squamous neoplasia.

Methods : Retrospective chart review of data extracted from a database comprised of demographic information and medical diagnosis information based on International Classification of Disease (ICD-9) codes. Outcome measures were analyzed using the Wilcoxon two-sided test, a non-parametric t-test.

Results : Database review yielded 35 patients with OSSN lesions proven by histopathological analysis. The mean age was 64.51 years with standard deviation 17.54 years. Patients were 28.57% female and 71.43% male. Nearly all patients were White (88.57%), with 5.71% African American, 2.86% Hispanic, and 2.86% Other. There was no significant difference in dysplasia grade between smokers and non-smokers (p=0.7044), those who use alcohol versus do not use alcohol (p=0.2470), those who use tobacco and alcohol versus those who do not (p=0.5117), and who use either tobacco or alcohol versus those who do not (p=0.8259).

Conclusions : No statistically significant relationship was found between high grade dysplasia and cigarette smoking, alcohol use, or both cigarette smoking and alcohol use.
