To present a novel case of ocular argyrosis mimicking conjunctival melanoma.Methods:
A 48-year-old man who is a jewelry manufacturer presented with raised pigmented lesions in the inferior fornices of both eyes. Brown-black colored, follicle-like, masses were observed in both fornices.Results:
An incisional biopsy confirmed the presence of silver and the diagnosis of ocular argyrosis.Conclusions:
Despite its limited negative health effects, ocular argyrosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of conjunctival pigmented lesions because of the potential for misidentification of neoplastic growth.
