Verrucous carcinoma is a rare and indolent variant of squamous cell carcinoma. We report the first histopathologically confirmed case of verrucous carcinoma of the conjunctiva. An 85-year-old male presented with complaint of mass in interpalpebral region in the left eye. Examination revealed a single, sessile, pale-colored exophytic mass with a pebble surface approximately 15 mm × 10 mm in size. Patient did not respond to topical therapy and underwent complete excision of the lesion with biopsy. Histopathological examination of the excisional biopsy revealed a diagnosis of verrucous carcinoma. The patient was healthy with no signs of recurrence at 2 years follow-up.
