Purpose
To report a case of a pediatric corneal limbal dermoid with eyelashes and to describe post-operative changes after excision with reconstruction using amniotic membrane grafting, sutures and fibrinogen-thrombin glue.

Case Report
One pediatric patient was identified with a grade II infratemporal corneal-limbal dermoid with conjunctival eyelashes. The dermoid was surgically excised and the cornea reconstructed with amniotic membrane using sutures and fibrinogen/thrombin glue.
