Resumen

SAINZ-ESTEBAN, A; SAORNIL-ALVAREZ, MA; MENDEZ-DIAZ, MC  y  BLANCO-MATEOS, G. Primary localized conjunctival amyloidosis: two cases reports. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2005, vol.80, n.1, pp.49-52. ISSN 0365-6691.

Case Reports: Two male patients, 21 and 61 years old presenting with hyperemia resistant to topical treatment. Ocular examination showed reddish conjunctival mass, painless, highly vascularized in bulbar conjunctiva. The conjunctival biopsy revealed the presence of amyloid within the conjunctiva itself. Conclusions: Primary localized conjunctival amyloidosis is a rare disease. Diagnosis consists of biopsy in order to detect amyloid material in the conjunctival tissue together with a systemic evaluation in order to rule out the presence of primary systemic amyloidosis.

Palabras clave : Primary conjunctival amyloidosis.
