Aim: To study the role of solar elastosis in the patient's with Conjunctival Squamous Cell Neoplasia (CSCN). Materials and Methods: Paraffin embedded 30 Conjunctival Squamous Cell Neoplasia tissues were studied for the presence of solar elastosis by Verhoeff's stain. Nineteen Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), 6 Carcinoma In Situ (CIS) and 5 Conjunctival Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) specimens were included in the study. Disease free conjunctiva and pterygium tissues were used as negative and positive control respectively. Results: Solar elastosis was found to be present in 19 of 30 (63.3%) Conjunctival Squamous Cell neoplasia specimens. Conclusion: Our study showed the presence of solar elastosis in conjunctival squamous cell neoplasia. Poor socioeconomic condition is an important factor as most of the elastosis positive patients were farmers.
