All AOXGD subtypes share common histopathologic features characterized by sheets of mononucleated foamy histiocytes (xanthoma cells) infiltrating the orbicularis muscles and the orbital tissue, accompanied by variable numbers of dispersed and/or aggregates of lymphocytes, plasma cells, and Touton giant cells (Figure 2).
Although AOXGDs all have similar lymphogranulomatous infiltrates, there are often subtle differences in the amount of lymphoid follicles, the number of Touton giant cells, the extent of fibrosis, and the presence of necrosis.
They have in common foamy histiocytes, mixed inflammatory infiltrate, and occasional foreign body or Touton giant cells.
