OBJECTIVES/METHODS: To describe a case of isolated conjunctival Kaposi's sarcoma treated with surgical resection and amniotic membrane graft. After surgical resection of the lesion an amniotic membrane graft was used to reconstruct the conjunctival surface. Histological studies were performed. RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: Rapid regeneration of the conjunctiva, with minimal scarring, occurred after the surgical procedure and no recurrence of the lesion was observed at 18 months of follow-up. Surgical resection with amniotic membrane grafting appears to be a useful therapeutic option in isolated conjunctival Kaposi's sarcoma.
