Abstract

Herein, we report a case of conjunctival clonal/inverted type A nevus with mild atypia. A 24-year-old female presented with a pigmented lesion of the left conjunctiva and plica semilunaris which had grown and increased in pigmentation for approximately eight weeks. An excisional biopsy was performed to rule out atypia, infection, and melanoma. Histological examination revealed a clonal/inverted type A nevus with mild atypia. This is a relatively rare but benign entity which may occasionally cause diagnostic confusion with melanoma.
