||Aim: Study the etiological profile of evisceration and enucleation at the University Hospital HKM of Cotonou. Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive, analytical and retrospective study which took place from January 1st
, 2006 to December
, 2016. It concerned all the files of the patients having benefited from evisceration/enucleation.
Results: 64 subjects were identified with a sex ratio of 1.78. The average age was 37.83 ± 10.7 years old. These 2 interventions had
an overall prevalence of 4.31% that of evisceration was 3.84% versus 0.47% for enucleation. The main cause was traumatic (56.1%)
for evisceration and tumoral (6 cases out of 7) for enucleation.

to tumors. It is important that preventive measures are implemented to reduce their prevalence.
