20 Possible Causes for Conjunctival and Scleral Pigmentation

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Pigment over the scleral entry site may suggest uveal tissue prolapse.[eyewiki.aao.org] A scleral entry site may be seen with an area of conjunctival injection or chemosis with or without conjunctival tear.[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Pterygium

    Moderate conjunctival hyperemia was noted both at and medial to the pterygium. There appeared to be some pigmentation at the corneal leading edge of the pterygium.[karger.com] There was moderate vascularity of the lesion, and the underlying scleral vessels were obscured.[karger.com]

  • Jaundice

    The sclera themselves are not "icteric" (stained with bile pigment), however, but rather the conjunctival membranes that overlie them.[en.wikipedia.org] This is sometimes referred to as scleral icterus.[en.wikipedia.org]

    The left eye had conjunctival congestion. A 4.5 mm 4.5 mm area of the scleral melt with minimal uveal pigments was seen at the temporal limbus [Figure 2].[ojoonline.org] The right eye revealed site of vascularized and conjunctivalized prior scleral patch graft 4 mm 4 mm temporal to the limbus [Figure 1].[ojoonline.org]

  • Scleral Staphyloma
