Abstract

Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is a benign proliferation that usually presents as pink to brown dermal nodules in the head and neck region of young adults. We present a biopsy-proven case of ALHE arising in the conjunctiva of an 11-year-old girl. The lesion was treated with excision. After 2 years there has been no recurrence.
