Abstract

During a 2-year follow-up period, the use of topical cyclosporine A (0.05%) combined with mitomycin C (0.01%) as an adjunctive treatment after surgical excision in cornea and conjunctiva intraepithelial neoplasia and squamous cell carcinoma was found to prevent tumor recurrence, especially in extensive lesions, when surgical excision cannot ensure a tumor-free margin.
