Abstract

Introduction: Ocular Surface Squamous Neoplasia is a spectrum of conjunctival and corneal epithelial neoplasia manifesting as dysplasia, carcinoma-in-situ and squamous cell carcinoma. Study was aimed to know the clinicopathological manifestations of OSSN in non-HIV patients and efficacy of topical cyclosporine.
Methods: 4 patients with conjunctival growth on medial side of eye suspecting OSSN were studied and all 4 underwent wide surgical excision followed by histopathological investigation. Followed up with topical 0.05% cyclosporine drops twice a day for 8 weeks.
Results: Case 1 and 2 showed moderately differentiated Squamous cell carcinoma. Case 3 showed full thickness dysplasia and case 4 showed conjunctival tissues with no evidence of malignancy. Case1 showed recurrence after 2 months and case 2 and 3 did not show recurrence.
Conclusion: OSSN in Non-HIV patients can present in similar fashion to HIV patients but with better prognosis.
