  Case report Top

A 15 years old unmarried Muslim girl has been under observation for the last 1½ years for conjunctival lithiasis in the left eye. She was admitted with complaints of bleeding from the left eye which stopped with routine treatment. After a lapse of four weeks regular formation of stones started in the same eye. From the localized c)njunctival lesion frothy exudate formed which got solidified within three to four minutes and in about an hour the conjun­ctival cul. de. sac became filled [Figure - 1] with innumerable such stones of different sizes. The chemical analysis of stones showed to be com­posed of different compounds of calcium salt. Conjunctival biopsy from the lesion showed submucosal granulation tissue with perivascu­lar calcification. Biochemical investigation revealed moderately raised serum calcium.

Treatment with dilute acetic acid drops stopped stone formation temporarily but later on it became refractory even on higher strength.

  Summary Top

A rare care of conjunctival lithiasis is presented.
