    Conjunctival Papilloma

    A 73-year-old man presented to the clinic with a two-week history of a progressively enlarging ocular surface lesion causing foreign body sensation. A sessile conjunctival tumor involving the limbus was observed. Ocular motility and slit-lamp examination were otherwise unremarkable. Surgical excision was the chosen treatment. The pathology revealed papilloma with severe intraepithelial dysplasia. Nine months after excision, there was no sign of recurrence.
