Conjunctival Neurilemoma: Report of 3 Cases

Conjunctival Neurilemoma: Report of 3 Cases Abstract Neurilemoma (schwannoma) of the conjunctiva is a rare ocular tumor. We report 3 cases of benign conjunctival neurilemoma occurring in women without other ocular or systemic disease. Two of these tumors arose from the bulbar conjunctiva and 1 from the tarsal conjunctiva. Immunoperoxidase staining for S-100 protein was positive in each case. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Neurilemoma (schwannoma) of the conjunctiva is a rare ocular tumor. We report 3 cases of benign conjunctival neurilemoma occurring in women without other ocular or systemic disease. Two of these tumors arose from the bulbar conjunctiva and 1 from the tarsal conjunctiva. Immunoperoxidase staining for S-100 protein was positive in each case. References 1.
