*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.

Recurrent melanoma of conjunctiva of right upper lid

recurrent melanoma of conjunctiva of rt upper lid

The patient was a Caucasian male who was in his late 50s. Biopsy had revealed a melanoma of the conjunctiva of the rt upper lid. The patient was referred to Dr. Byron Smith - a world-renowned ophthalmic plastic surgeon in New York City. Initially, local excisions were carried out. This photograph shows a recurrent lesion following a local excision. Subsequent photographs will show results of an extensive resection and repair of the lid.
