abstract

  • Benign hemangiomas are rare vascular tumors of the conjunctiva that typically present clinically in the first few weeks of life and resolve spontaneously. De novo presentation later in childhood has not been well documented. We present the unusual case of an 11-year-old boy with a rapidly growing benign de novo conjunctival hemangioma that was treated with surgical excision.
