Cases of conjunctival papilloma evaluated at a hospital that acts as a referral centre for native people (Indian and Inuit) from northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories were compared with those from other hospitals in the same region whose referral base is primarily non-native. When the data were standardized for population unitsof 100,000 the tumours appeared to be occurring with a greater frequency among lnuit of the Western Arctic. These findings are supported statistically, although it is possible that bias may have been introduced by the small number of cases and other related factors.
