Abstract: Lentigo maligna has an extensive and neoplastic character. It typically progresses slowly and may eventually develop into an invasive melanoma, which is called lentigo maligna melanoma. Ocular melanoma is the second most common type of melanoma. The uvea is the most common site of origin of ocular melanomas, while conjunctival melanoma accounts for about 1-5% of cases. In this article, we describe a rare case of synchronic conjunctival melanoma and lentigo maligna on the face.

“…Shields et al have also observed that melanomas showed significant features of increased thickness compared to other pigmented lesions of the conjunctiva (24). However, the comparison of melanoma with pigmented naevus of the conjunctiva, showed that melanomas are most often only partly elevated (part of the lesion is flat and part is nodular), which is most probably related to their likely formation on the foundation of PAM (5,10,11).…”
