Abstract

The limbus is an elective site of epithelial malignancies, mostly represented by precarcinomatous lesions. An 83-year-old female patient was operated for an exophytic tumor of the limbus. Histological examination showed an invasive squamous carcinoma. As the excision was not complete, complementary radiation therapy (45 Gy) was applied with a good short-term result. This case report emphasizes the value of early diagnosis and treatment of limbal tumors at the stage of precancerous lesions.
