A 70 year-old presented with papilloma-like lesions of the right temporal conjunctiva. Biopsy revealed this to be squamous cell carcinoma. There was no evidence of metastasis (like lymphadenopathy). The lesions were excised via a bare-sclera technique followed by intraoperative mitomycin C application to the sclera bed and adjacent conjunctiva.
