Different types of conjunctival papilloma presenting in the same eye.

Author information

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Athens, Greece.


A 31-year-old Black man presented with two oval masses in his right conjunctiva. The tumors were completely excised and histology showed that the inferior lesion was a conjunctival squamous papilloma with pigmentation while the superior one was an inverted conjunctival papilloma, which grew in an endophytic manner. Follow up examination one year later showed no recurrence. Literature search revealed no previous report of simultaneous appearance of these types of papilloma in the same eye. Management of conjunctival squamous papillomas is difficult and is complicated by multiple recurrences in contrast to inverted conjunctival papillomas where no recurrences have been reported after complete excision. Thus, histopathology is an absolute necessity even when papillomas appear in the same eye.
