A case of isolated conjunctival lymphangioma
The present case has been reported in the journal Ophthalmology.

A 31-year-old man presented with a chief complaint of irritation while wearing his contact lens in the right eye. Slit-lamp biomicroscopy revealed an area of hemorrhagic lymphangiectasia in the inferonasal quadrant of the patient’s conjunctiva that extended posteriorly under the caruncle.

The lesion was characterized with ultrasound biomicroscopy that showed subconjunctival cystic spaces. The lesion was surgically excised and cryotherapy was applied to the nasal border.

Histology demonstrated lymphatic ectasia, bloodless channels lined with flattened endothelium, as well as scattered lymphocytes and mast cells consistent with the rare diagnosis of an isolated conjunctival lymphangioma.
