Abstract

An unusual case of invasive mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the conjunctiva developed in a 72-year-old woman. Unlike previously reported mucoepidermoid carcinomas, this lesion did not manifest a mucin-producing component until intraocular invasion had taken place. Although epidermoid cells invaded the globe and grew to a limited extent in the anterior chamber, the majority of epidermoid and mucin-producing elements remained segregated to the epibulbar and intraocular locations, respectively.
