Abstract

Purpose: To report the successful use of liquid nitrogen cryotherapy in treating a conjunctival vascular tumor. Methods: A Brymil unit with a "D" tip was used to apply a liquid nitrogen spray for cryotherapy, using a previously described double freeze-thaw technique. Results: One year after treatment, the suspected hemangioma was markedly decreased in size and redness. Conclusion: Liquid nitrogen cryotherapy should be considered as an alternative to more frequently used methods of treatment of conjunctival vascular tumors.
