Epithelial Conjunctival Tumors 4531 Conjunctival Cysts

Conjunctival cysts are harmless and benign. Occurrence is most often postoperative (for example after surgery to correct strabismus), post-traumatic, or spontaneous. They usually take the form of small clear fluid-filled inclusions of conjunctival epithelium whose goblet cells secrete into the cyst and not on to the surface (Fig. 4.21 ). Cysts can lead to a foreign-body sensation and are removed surgically by marsupialization (removal of the upper half of the cyst).
