A case of a squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva is presented. The lesion was removed with recurrence in another conjunctival site. The patient received cycles of 5-Fluorouracil as adjuvant treatment to the surgical removal and presented unfavorable evolution, requiring orbital exenteration. Comments are made on the use of antimitotic drugs in the management of these lesions.
