Abstract

Carcinoma in situ of the corneoscleral limbus in a 13-year-old girl is the youngest case of this condition known so far. After diagnosis was made by biopsy, β-radiation with strontium 90 was given to a dose of 4,000 roentgen equivalents physical in four weeks with disappearance of the lesion in three weeks.
