Squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva. Value of exfoliative cytology in diagnosis.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Cytologic examination is of potential value to the practicing ophthalmologist in confirming the clinical impression of cancer of the eye. Scrapings of conjunctival lesions can be prepared in the office, stained with Giemsa stain and rapidly examined. Carcinoma in situ and squamous cell carcinoma of the bulbar conjunctiva were presented as illustrations of the usefulness of exfoliative cytology in clinical ophthalmology.
