    An elderly patient with a diffuse ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) of the left eye is treated with cycles of Interferon, 5 Fluorouracil and Mitomycin C topical chemotherapy without improvement. Due to high out-of-pocket costs and epiltheliopathy after 7 months of treatment he decides to abandon chemotherapy and start Aloe Vera eyedrops which improved his condition and chemoreduced the lesion. He later underwent tumor excision which led to severe limbal stem cell deficiency that was corrected through ocular surface reconstruction and simple limbal epithelial transplantation (SLET).
