• Gold deposits were seen in the cornea and conjunctiva of a 71-year-old woman after therapy with 5.5 g of gold sodium thiomalate. We were able to demonstrate gold deposition both histopathologically and ultrastructurally in a conjunctival biopsy specimen. Gold deposition is usually benign and does not require cessation of therapy unless inflammatory complications occur.
