The authors have recently experienced a case of conjunctival papilloma which was developed on whole conjunctiva. The 6-year-old girl has soft, pinkish and pedunculated culated growth with delicate finger like processes in the right eye. The processes are scattered all over the mucous membrane of the bulbar and palpebral conjunctiva in considerable numbers. It is probable that many of these pedunculated types are of viral origin and that their spreads are due to contact infection. The papilloma of viral origin has no evidence of distant metastasis or malignant changes. The treatment was performed by electric cauterization with hyfricator and the result has been excellent up to date, 6 months after cauterization.
