Abstract

Silicone Rubber Scleral Buckle Implant Simulating Conjunctival Tumor

We report a unique case of a silicone rubber scleral buckle implant simulating a conjunctival tumor. The patient had remote scleral buckling procedure for a retinal detachment and subsequent removal secondary to implant extrusion. Slit lamp examination revealed a large conjunctival mass with a papillomatous surface and overlying corkscrew vessels. Radiologic imaging revealed a septated fluid collection corresponding with the lesion.
