ROJAS RONDON, Irene et al. Conjunctival papilloma. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2020, vol.33, n.2, e816.  Epub June 01, 2020. ISSN 0864-2176.

Conjunctival papilloma is a benign acquired squamous cell tumor occurring at any age, but more commonly in the third and fourth decades of life. Papillomas are associated to human papillomavirus infection, usually of types 6 and 11. A case is presented of a male smoker patient in his fourth decade of life. The patient attended the Oculoplastics Service due to conjunctival volume increase in his left eye. Interrogation and exhaustive ocular examination led to the clinical diagnosis of recurrent conjunctival papilloma. Exeresis, cryotherapy and biopsy of the conjunctival lesions were indicated. The anatomopathological diagnosis was confirmed after the intervention and a readjustment was made of the topical ocular treatment with interferon, with which satisfactory results were obtained.

Keywords : Conjunctival papilloma; squamous cell tumor; cryotherapy; human papillomavirus.
