    Introduction: Squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva is generally a low-grade tumor. Invasive squamous cell carcinoma, however, is uncommon, and intraocular extension has rarely been reported. We report a case of invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva with intra-ocular involvement in 94 year-old man.

    Methods: A case report.

    Results: A 94-year-old male patient presented with a rapidly growing exophytic mass involving the right eyeball for 2 months.The biopsy performed a well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva. 

    The extension assessment showed local bone extension. The patient underwent exenteration with good postoperative consequences.

    Conclusion: This disease has a variable appearance. Late presentation with large orbital tumours are not uncommon. Early diagnosis is crucial to improve the visual prognosis.
