Description

Human papillomavirus, a papovavirus, is the causative agent of all warts. There are at least 63 subtypes of this virus, certain ones of which are more likely to cause warts in particular locations or to be associated with malignancies. Over the last 6 years, HPV-6, HPV-11, and HPV-16 have been detected in both benign and malignant lesions of the conjunctiva. We report a patient with a large viral papilloma of the palpebral conjunctiva of the right lower eyelid. This case demonstrates that even very large viral papillomas can be treated successfully.
