Abstract

Rapid regeneration of the conjunctiva, with minimal scarring, occurred after the surgical procedure and no recurrence of the lesion was observed at 18 months of follow-up. Surgical resection with amniotic membrane grafting appears to be a useful therapeutic option in isolated conjunctival Kaposi's sarcoma.
