Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) conjunctiva is a rare cancer of the ocular surface with an incidence rate of 0.02 per 100,000 in high latitude areas to 3.5 per 100,000 at low latitudes near the Equator. This positive correlation between this SCC incidence and latitude indicates that exposure to ultraviolet radiation may play a role its etiology. The disease is more common in elderly and male patients, but may develop at a younger age, especially in association with xeroderma pigmentosum or immunodeficiency. Isolated squamous cell carcinoma of cornea is rare with few case reports. Here, we report two cases of conjunctival SCC, both in elderly males who presented with whitish painless mass encroaching the cornea. This mass was excised in both the patients. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of SCC conjunctiva.IOFF
