Abstract Details



Purpose:

We report a rare presentation of peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor (pPNET) as an isolated conjunctival lesion.

Setting:

Department of ophthalmology, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan

Methods:

case report

Results:

A 23-year-old male presented to our clinic with a 1-month history of a painless, enlarging conjunctival lesion in his right eye. Excisional biopsy was done and the immunohistopathological report confirmed the diagnosis of pPNET. Systemic survey showed no sign of metastasis. The patient had been followed for eighteen months without local tumor recurrence or systemic metastasis.

Conclusions:

We reported a rare case of conjunctival pPNET who was remained tumor remission for 18 months following surgical excision only. A standard treatment strategy cannot be concluded from a single case report. Nevertheless, collaboration with specialists and timely diagnosis and treatment may be beneficial for a better outcome.
