Xeroderma Pigmentosa (XP) results in hypersensitivity to ultraviolet radiation. We intend to report different clinical presentations of XP presenting to a tertiary eye care centre. 3 cases of different age groups i.e. 3, 16 and 25 years old presented with mild dry eye associated with ocular melanosis, ocular surface squamous neoplasia masquerading as conjunctival mass and idiopathic keratitis leading to corneal scarring and spontaneous perforation, respectively. Their clinical presentations, course of disease, response to treatment and outcomes will be discussed in detail. Because of limited literature on ocular presentations of XP, it is extremely vital to have an insight on this subject.
