Conjunctival Carcinoma

Conjunctival carcinomas are usually whitish, raised, thickened areas of epithelial tissue whose surface forms a plateau. These lesions are usually ker-atinizing squamous cell carcinomas that develop from epithelial dysplasia (precancer) and progress to a carcinoma in situ (Fig. 4.23). Conjunctival carcinomas must be excised and a cytologic diagnosis obtained, and the patient must undergo postoperative radiation therapy to prevent growth deep into the orbit.
