Introduction: The spectrum of conjunctival lesions range from degenerative and inflammatory lesions to benign or malignant neoplasms. Hence it is important for these lesions to be recognised and treated appropriately to prevent complications.
Objectives: To assess the histomorphological features of various conjunctival lesions, to classify them, to see the age and sex distribution and the frequency of various conjunctival lesions received in Department of Pathology.
Materials and Methods: The clinicopathologic details of excised conjunctival lesions were reviewed retrospectively in our tertiary care centre over a period of 10 years.
Result: The conjunctival lesions are more common in males and right eye. Pterygium is the commonest benign lesion and Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common malignant conjunctival tumour. Benign conjunctival lesions were more common than the malignant ones in our study.
Conclusion: The most frequent conjunctival lesion was Pterygium in our Tertiary Care Centre. The most common malignant conjunctival tumour was Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
