Abstract

We report a very rare case with recurrent pterygium with cilia mimicking ectopic cilia. The history of the  patient revealed prior pterygium excision operations. A slit-lamb examination revealed the recurrent pterygium with cilia in the nasal region. In the nasal region, the caruncular tissue which normally has cilia dragged by the residual base of the pterygium may be speculated to ectopic cilia.

Keywords: Recurrent pterygium; Cilia; Caruncle; Caruncular dragging
