Abstract

A 64-year-old white man presented with necrotizing scleritis with scleral perforation and uveal prolapse. Pathologic examination revealed squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva invading adjacent corneal stroma and ciliary body. Invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva is uncommon, and intraocular invasion has rarely been reported in the literature.
