The article offers clinical information on white lesion on the inferior fornix. The particular lesion is described as white and there are relatively few conjunctival lesions that are white, which makes the lesion unusual. An incisional biopsy can be performed to diagnose the condition. Information is also presented on the case of a patient whose lesion was surgically excised via a Mohs micrographic technique.
