Figure 1: Response of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma to systemic neoadjuvant intravenous chemotherapy. (a) Clinical photograph showing a pink, fleshy, mass protruding from the left palpebral fissure overhanging the lower lid completely obscuring the globe. (b) Computed tomography scan – axial cut through the orbit showing the isodense mass lesion surrounding the left globe. (c) Clinical photograph showing reduction in the tumor size after one cycle of chemotherapy. (d) Clinical photograph showing further reduction in the tumor size after two cycles of chemotherapy. (e) Preoperative clinical photograph showing marked reduction in the tumor size after the third cycle of chemotherapy. The globe is in an elevated and abducted position owing to the tumor invading the extraocular muscles. There is evidence of diffuse conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma. Severe ectropion of the lower lid with complete tarsal show is also noted. (f) Computed tomography scan after three cycles of chemotherapy demonstrating a radiologically evident reduction in the size of the tumor around the left eye
