Blue nevi of the conjunctiva.

Abstract

Two examples of conjunctival blue nevi are presented. The clinical and histologic features of these lesions are not in accord with descriptions of blue nevi in the ophthalmic literature. In both cases, the nevi's clinical appearance was brown instead of blue; the nevi could be moved with the conjunctiva over the sclera; and they were not present at birth. Histologically, they demonstrated subepithelial, spindle-shaped melanocytes. The location of the cells was no deeper than that of common acquired compound or subepithelial conjunctival nevi.
