Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The authors describe a 66-year-old man with primary basal cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva. He presented with a fleshy nodular conjunctival lesion of 4 months' duration, located at the nasal limbus of the left eye. No associated cutaneous lesions were present.

RESULTS:

The lesion was completely excised, and results of histopathologic examination showed a primary basal cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva.

CONCLUSION:

This report provides clinicopathologic evidence that primary basal cell carcinoma can rarely occur in the conjunctiva. The authors summarize two well-documented previously reported cases of this unusual lesion.
