Conjunctival Papilloma

Papillomas are of viral origin (human papillomavirus) and may develop from the bulbar or palpebral conjunctiva. They are benign and do not turn malignant. As in the skin, conjunctival papillomas can occur as branchingpediculate tumors or as broad-based lesions on the surface of the conjunctiva (Fig. 4.22). Papillomas produce a permanent foreign-body sensation that is annoying to the patient, and the entire lesion should be surgically removed.
