Epidemiological, Clinical and Computed Tomographic Profile of Conjunctival Epidermoid Carcinoma: About 54 Cases
Conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma is a common malignant tumor in adults. It affects the peri-limbic conjunctiva. This is a neoplasia that is increasing in tropical Africa because it occurs in subjects with prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays, in patients immunocompromised to the human immunodeficiency virus and HPV infection. Computed tomography allows one to make a diagnosis. We report the case of 57 patients in whom the diagnosis was made radiologically and confirmed by histology.
