Article Type: ---- Unspecified ----

An asymptomatic fungal cyst of a conjunctival infection was found and removed by biopsy in a young shepherdess. Histopathologic evaluations of the excised tissue specimen from the lesion of the conjunctiva demonstrated an epithelium lined cavity containing a tangled mycelial mass that was surrounded by inflammatory cells and the fungus was identified as Bipolaris spicifera. It is concluded that asymptomatic conjunctival infections by fungi may occur without a having previous history of trauma or having any signs of inflammation.
