[A case of conjunctival raspberry tumor of viral origin].


We describe the clinical and histopathological findings of a conjunctival papilloma due to papillomavirus. The therapeutic method applied was excision plus cryotherapy. These lesions are known to recur, and papillomavirus DNA sequences are present in several cases of conjunctival dysplasia and carcinoma. Using biological molecular methods (in situ hybridization, Southern blot hybridization, and particularly polymerase chain reaction), more than 60 Human Papillomavirus have currently been reported. This new detection techniques improve the possibility of findings HPV infection, and increase the interest for this virus extremely widely distributed in man.
