Premalignant conjunctival disorders
Malignancies from the conjunctiva are rare afflictions. They emanate from squamous cells in the mucous membrane or from melanocytes. More common are premalignant disorders like conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia and primary acquired melanosis. These can develop into malignancies and are hence treated and followed. Very few publications in the area give guidelines on reasonable follow-up of this group. We are currently working on a paper to present our results to contribute in the field.
