Hammad K Elzarrug, Tarek Makhlouf, Ruwida M.S Abdullah

, Aim The aim of the study was to evaluate the outcome of pterygium surgical management with inferior temporal conjunctivo-limbal auto graft for the treatment of primary pterygium. MethodThis prospective study included 9 eyes of 9 patients with primary pterygium treated by means of pterygium excision with conjunctivo-limbal auto graft from the lower bulbar conjunctiva in Al Haram private Hospital in Benghazi, Libya. Patients were examined on the first day, the first week and the second week and after 3 months. Outcomes were evaluated in terms of complications and recurrence. Results During the 3 months of follow-up, few postoperative complications occurred and recurrence occurred in only one (11.1 %) eye during the follow-up period. Conclusion inferior bulbar conjunctivo-limbal auto graft or the management of primary pterygium has a low recurrence rate, leaving the superior conjunctiva available for glaucoma surgery if needed further.
