Abstract

PURPOSE:

This study aimed to present the clinical and histopathological features of a pigmented spindle cell naevus (PSCN) appearing in the conjunctiva.

METHODS:

Histopathological examination of the lesion following excision and review of the pertinent literature.

RESULTS:

The features were consistent with those previously recognized in the skin as the PSCN of Reed.

CONCLUSION:

The PSCN can appear in the conjunctiva and should not be confused with conjunctival melanoma.
