    Keratoacanthoma is typically a skin lesion which rarely occurs in Conjunctiva. On the literature review, only 16 Cases of Conjunctival Keratoacanthoma have previously been reported in the English language. All previously described lesions occurred at the limbus. We describe here a case of a 43-year-old Woman with a lesion that is compatible both clinically and histopathologically with conjunctival keratoacanthoma. The treatments given were excisional biopsy and amniotic membrane transplant. The outcome was a complete clinical remission during the follow-up period (3 months). Conjuctival keratoacathoma is rare and making correct differential diagnosis between kerathoacanthoma and Squamous cell carcinoma is very important. We recommend complete surgical exicision and carrying out close monitoring after surgery due to the possibility of relapse and conversion to Squamous cell carcinoma.
