This study aimed to present the clinical and histopathological features of a pigmented spindle cell naevus (PSCN) appearing in the conjunctiva.


Histopathological examination of the lesion following excision and review of the pertinent literature.


The features were consistent with those previously recognized in the skin as the PSCN of Reed.


The PSCN can appear in the conjunctiva and should not be confused with conjunctival melanoma.
