Actinic granuloma of the conjunctiva

Am J Dermatopathol. 1992 Jun;14(3):253-4. doi: 10.1097/00000372-199206000-00012.


Few cases of actinic granuloma of the conjunctiva have been reported. A 39-year-old woman developed a pinguecula. A biopsy study revealed actinic granuloma histopathologically. This case is an example of the interface between dermatology and other fields, and helps to confirm the existence of actinic granuloma of the skin as a distinct entity.
