To compare between single intraoperative mitomycin C (MMC) application and timbal conjunctival autograft transplantation (LCAT) in management of primary pterygium 40 eyes with primary pterygium were divided into 2 groups.

Follow up period ranged from 8 to 12 months (mean10 months). As regards group (1): recurrence was reported in 3 eyes (159.6), stromal keratitis in 1 eye (5%), epithelial defects in 3 eyes (15%), granuloma in 1 eye (5%), and transient elevation of 10P in 4 eyes (20%). As regards group (2): graft edema was detected in 16 eyes (80%), hyperemia of the graft in 7 eyes (35%), granuloma in 2 eyes (10%), flap retraction in 2 eyes (10%), while recurrence was reported in 2 eyes (10%).
