• Carcinoma
  • Aim: To present a case of spindle cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva to emphasize the importance of detailed pathological examination to differentiate the cell type for the prognosis and the decision of proper treatment. (scopemed.org)
  • Conclusion: Because of their possible aggressive behaviour, spindle cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva is known to be sight- and life threatening. (scopemed.org)
  • conjunctivochalasis
  • Conjunctivochalasis may be associated with previous surgery, Blepharitis, Meibomian Gland Disorder (MGD), Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and Aqueous Tear Deficiency, Because the disorder often occurs in people with typical dry eye symptoms, it can be difficult to distinguish readily the discomfort caused by the dry eye from that directly related to the redundant conjunctiva. (wikipedia.org)
  • This conjunctivoplasty surgery to correct conjunctivochalasis typically involves resection of an ellipse-shaped segment of conjunctiva just inferior to the lower lid margin, and is usually followed either by suturing or amniotic membrane graft transplantation to close the wound. (wikipedia.org)
  • iris
  • Any spot which continues to grow on the iris and the conjunctiva should be checked out. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sometimes, it may also appear as if the eyeball has moved slightly backwards from the white part of the eye due to the fluid filled in the conjunctiva all over the eyes except the iris. (wikipedia.org)
  • genus
  • Measles (rubeola) is an infectious disease caused by multiplication of a single-strand ribonucleic acid (RNA) virus of the genus Morbillivirus in the upper respiratory tract and conjunctiva. (cochrane.org)
  • inflammation
  • The conjunctiva , which covers the front of the eye, may be penetrated by viruses that cause a local inflammation of the eye or that pass into the bloodstream and cause a severe general disease, such as smallpox. (britannica.com)
  • Inflammation-related molecules were highly upregulated in the primary culture and to a lesser extent in Chang conjunctiva. (arvojournals.org)
  • tear film
  • The resulting loose, excess conjunctiva may mechanically irritate the eye and disrupt the tear film and its outflow, leading to dry eye and excess tearing. (wikipedia.org)
  • normal
  • There has been discrepancy in reporting the bacterial flora of the conjunctiva in normal people and those with non-bacterial eye disease. (arvojournals.org)
