A patient is reported who had multiple verrucae involving the palpebral and bulbar conjunctivae. The location of the lesions forbade the use of many of the usual types of wart therapy.
After three years of observation, the lesions disappeared. Healing may have been spontaneous or possibly due to the simple measures used.
In spite of what appeared to be a hopeless situation, a cure was obtained without mutilation therapy.
