(3) Clinically, (an elevated, soft, yellowish mass with superficial blood vessels and a convex well demarcated anterior border), distinction from other ocular pathologies including dermoid cysts, dermolipoma, lacrimal gland abnormalities, and subconjunctival lipomas is usually possible.
In our series, the most common diagnosis of 134 conjunctival lesions were, nevus 18.66% (n=25), chronic inflammation 15%(n=20), followed by foreign body granuloma 13.4% (n=18), carcinoma in situ 10.44% (n=14), Squamous cell dysplasia 5.97%(n=8), tenons cyst 5.97% (n=8), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) 5.22% (n=7), epithelial cysts 5.22%(n=7), dermolipoma in 4.48%(n=6), haemangioma 3.73% (n=5), squamous papilloma 3.73%(n=5), dermoid 2.98%(n=4), pyogenic granuloma 2.98% (n=4),malignant melanoma 1.49% (n=2) and lymphoma 0.74 %(n=1) respectively (Table1).
