A case of a 16-year-old male with xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) who presented with multiple pigmented and nonpigmented conjunctival lesions in both eyes is reported. He had a keratinized lesion at the limbus and a pigmented lesion in bulbar conjunctiva in the left eye and multiple pigmented bulbar conjunctival lesions and a keratinized limbal nodule in the right eye. Excision biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) and conjunctival intraepithelial melanocytic neoplasia-2 (CIMN-2) in the right eye and OSSN and conjunctival melanoma in situ (CIMN-5) in the left eye. Two malignant conjunctival lesions occurring simultaneously in the same eye of a patient with XP have not been reported earlier.
