Conjunctival Pigmented Lesions: Diagnosis and Management
Pigmented lesions that arise from the conjunctiva include nevus, complexion-associated melanosis (CAM), primary acquired melanosis (PAM), and malignant melanoma.1,2 All of these lesions arise from melanocytes. However, a number of other lesions have a similar appearance but a different source, such as pigment deposits from silver and iron.  


It is essential to differentiate these lesions. An undiagnosed melanoma, for instance, can be deadly. This review provides an overview of presentation and management of melanocytic conjunctival pigmented lesions.
