IN JANUARY 1999, an otherwise healthy 40-year-old Japanese woman had
a painless, yellow-orange growth on the inferior limbus of her left eye that
was of 2 weeks' duration (Figure 1A).
The lesion was removed by simple excision in January and again in April 1999.
A rapid recurrence was noted in June 1999 (Figure 1B). Superficial keratectomy and a lamellar patch keratoplasty
were performed. Subconjunctival injection of triamcinolone acetonide (20 mg/0.5
mL) was given postoperatively. The graft remained clear without recurrence
after 2 years of follow-up (Figure 1C).
