          Caso clínico: Las lesiones conjuntivales pigmentadas representan un reto diagnóstico para el clínico. Hombre de 37 años de edad quien presentó una masa conjuntival pigmentada en su ojo derecho. Clínicamente se diagnosticó como melanoma, por lo que se realizó escisión completa del tumor. El diagnóstico histopatológico fue de queratosis seborreica. Discusión: La queratosis seborreica es una lesión benigna que se presenta en los párpados y en la cara de individuos de edad media y adultos mayores. El desarrollo de esta lesión en la conjuntiva es poco frecuente, solo se han informado 2 casos en la literatura. La queratosis seborreica debe ser considerada en el diagnóstico diferencial de lesiones conjuntivales pigmentadas.

          Translated abstract

          Case report: Pigmented conjunctival lesions are a diagnostic challenge for the clinician. A 37-year-old man presented with a pigmented mass involving the conjunctiva of his right eye. Clinically, a diagnosis of malignant melanoma was made and a wide excision of the tumor was performed. The histopathologic diagnosis was seborrheic keratosis. Discussion: Seborrheic keratosis is a benign lesion which occurs on the eyelids and face of middle-aged and elderly individuals. The occurrence of this lesion on the conjunctiva is rare, however there are 2 cases reported in the world literature. Seborrheic keratosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of conjunctival pigmented lesions.

            Conjunctival melanoma.

            S Seregard (2015)
            Conjunctival melanoma is an uncommon tumor that is likely to recur and carries an overall mortality rate of approximately 30%. The seemingly unpredictable and enigmatic character of this entity has initiated much debate over the past decades regarding the etiology, histogenesis, prognosis, and preferred management. This review outlines the historical perspective; incidence and demographics; etiologic factors; histogenesis; cytogenetic findings; clinical characteristics; histopathologic and ultrastructural features; differential diagnoses; classifications; management of primary, recurrent, and systemic disease; survival after conjunctival melanoma; and diverse factors of potential prognostic significance. Finally, a brief outlook on present and future research objectives is provided.
