A choristoma is a benign mass composed of tissue normally found in another location. Ocular choristomas can be classified as dermoid, dermatolipoma, complex choristoma (choristomas with more than one tissue type), and single-tissue choristoma. Examples of the latter are a lacrimal gland, respiratory, and osseous choristomas.Epibulbar osseous choristoma is the rarest type of choristoma of the eye. Composed of firm deposits of bone, osseous choristomas are most commonly found in the superotemporal conjunctiva; occasionally, the mass is firmly attached to the sclera. As with all choristomas, osseous choristomas are believed to be congenital. Due to its location underneath the eyelid, the mass is usually detected once the child becomes old enough to palpate it. Here we present the case of a 12-year-old female with an epibulbar osseous choristoma.
