A 77-year-old male presented with a large papillomatous conjunctival lesion on his lower eyelid. Biopsy and extensive systemic investigation revealed this to be a primary conjunctival transitional cell carcinoma. Patient preference and coexisting medical problems dictated conservative management with surgical debulking, topical mitomicin, and radiotherapy. Local control has been maintained for 4 years to date.
