Abstract

Pterygium is a wing-shaped fibrovascular growth of the conjunctiva across the limbus onto the cornea. Although a hereditary influence on pterygium formation is recognised and a report of possible genetic influence in white South Africans has been published, little is known about these factors in black African populations.
