PURPOSE To evaluate prognostic factors based on origin of conjunctival melanoma. DESIGN Interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Three hundred eighty-two consecutive patients. METHODS Retrospective chart review. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Melanoma-related metastasis and death. RESULTS The melanoma arose from primary acquired melanosis (PAM; n = 284; 74%), from pre-existing nevus (n = 26; 7%), and de novo (n = 72; 19%). The mean tumor base was 11 mm for melanoma arising from PAM, 6 mm for… Expand
Conjunctival melanoma: outcomes based on tumour origin in 629 patients at a single ocular oncology centre
TLDR
Retrospective review of conjunctival melanoma patients at a single ocular oncology centre between April 18, 1974 and September 9, 2019 showed no difference by tumour origin for visual acuity loss ≥3 lines, local tumour recurrence, exenteration, metastasis, or death. Expand
American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Clinical Classification Predicts Conjunctival Melanoma Outcomes
TLDR
Melanoma classified as T2 and T3 (compared with T1) showed significantly higher rates of local recurrence, regional lymph node metastasis, distant metastases, and death. Expand
Conjunctival Tumors in 5002 Cases. Comparative Analysis of Benign Versus Malignant Counterparts. The 2016 James D. Allen Lecture.
TLDR
In an ocular oncology practice, conjunctival tumors are benign (52%), premalignant (18%), or malignant (30%). Expand
Conjunctival Melanoma in Asian Indians: A Study of 42 Patients
TLDR
Conjunctival melanoma predominantly occurs in middle-aged Asian Indians and is associated with a high rate of systemic metastasis and death. Expand
Conjunctival Melanoma: Outcomes Based on Age at Presentation in 629 Patients at a Single Ocular Oncology Center.
TLDR
Older patients with conjunctival melanoma present with more extensive disease and have increased risk for visual acuity loss and local tumor recurrence. Expand
Conjunctival melanoma treatment outcomes in 288 patients: a multicentre international data-sharing study.
TLDR
This multicentre international study showed that eighth edition of AJCC tumour staging was related to the risk of local recurrence of conjunctival melanoma after treatment, and factors such as tumour ulceration, plica or caruncle involvement and tumour thickness were not significantly associated with an increased risk ofLocal recurrence. Expand
Conjunctival Melanoma: Outcomes based on the American Joint Committee on Cancer Clinical Classification (8th Edition) of 425 Patients at a Single Ocular Oncology Center.
TLDR
Based on the AJCC 8 edition of conjunctival melanoma, the 10-year risk per T category significantly increased for visual acuity loss of >3 lines, recurrence/new tumor, exenteration, locoregional and systemic melanomas-related metastasis, and melanoma-related death. Expand
Conjunctival melanoma: A 20-year survey in a comprehensive medical center.
TLDR
Different tumor characteristics were found in this cohort of patients treated and followed up at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan and higher metastasis and mortality rate could suggest a more aggressive disease pattern. Expand
Histologic features of conjunctival melanoma predictive of metastasis and death (an American Ophthalmological thesis).
TLDR
In conjunctival melanoma, thicker tumor, ulceration, and higher mitotic rate are correlated with regional nodal metastasis, and lymphovascular invasion, epithelioid cell type, and microsatellitosis are correlation with melanoma-related death. Expand
Prognostic factors and survival for malignant conjunctival melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma over four decades.
TLDR
Age at diagnosis is a determinant of survival for both conjunctival SCC and melanoma, and male sex, T4 and N1 staging are also important prognostic factors for melanoma. Expand

TLDR
The technique of initial surgery was shown to be an important factor in preventing eventual tumor recurrence, metastasis, and death, and patients who were managed with excisional biopsy using the "no-touch technique" plus alcohol corneal epitheliectomy and supplemental cryotherapy fared far better than those treated with excisonalBiopsy alone.

Prognostic factors in primary malignant melanoma of the conjunctiva: a clinicopathological study of 256 cases.
TLDR
Tumours in unfavourable locations--that is, those involving the palpebral conjunctiva, fornices, plica, caruncle, and lid margins, were associated with 2.2 times higher mortality compared with (epi)bulbar melanomas, but were not prognostic in patients with melanomas in unf favourable sites. Expand

TLDR
Convunctival nevus is a benign tumor most often located at the nasal or temporal limbus and rarely in the fornix, tarsus, or cornea. Expand
Conjunctival melanoma: is it increasing in the United States?
TLDR
Substantial temporal changes in the incidence of conjunctival melanoma have occurred in the United States in recent years, suggesting a possible link to a sunlight-related etiology. Expand
Conjunctival melanoma and melanosis: a reappraisal of terminology, classification and staging
TLDR
The TNM staging system for conjunctival melanoma should be revised to include a Tis stage, take account of tumour size, quadrant and caruncular involvement, and improve staging of any local invasion beyond conjunctiva. Expand
Screening for conjunctival melanoma metastasis: literature review.
TLDR
With the introduction of sentinel node biopsies for conjunctival melanomas with a poor prognosis and screening for locoregional and distant metasases prognosis might be improved. Expand

TLDR
The incidence of conjunctival melanoma increased in Sweden during the period 1960 to 2005 and increasingly arose from parts of the conjunctiva exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Expand
