Abstract

Introduction: Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) includes pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions of the cornea and conjunctiva. Bowen’s disease (BD) is carcinoma in situ or intra-epidermal squamous cell carcinoma which is a part of intraepithelial ocular surface squamous neoplasia of conjunctiva. Pigmented Bowen’s disease is a rare entity characterized by presence of increased pigmentation in the epidermis or papillary dermis, in addition to the typical findings of Bowen’s Disease commonly affecting the skin and mucous membranes. We report here a case of pigmented Bowen’s disease of the bulbar conjunctiva in a middle aged south Indian man. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of pigmented Bowen’s Disease of bulbar conjunctiva in the world.
