Abstract

Myeloid sarcoma is a life-threatening condition that can present rarely as a conjunctival lesion. This case report describes a 48-year-old woman who was diagnosed after conjunctival biopsy, subsequently systemically investigated and then treated with chemotherapy. Collaboration of the ophthalmologist, pathologist and oncologist was critical in the successful management of this patient.
