Paediatric Ophthalmology: Raised superior bilateral conjunctival lesions in 7-year-old child
University of Dundee, UK
This report describes the case of a young 7-year-old child who presented with a four-month history of raised superior conjunctival lesions in both eyes and subsequently underwent a conjunctival biopsy in the right eye.
He was not known to have either of the congenital disorders and subsequent biopsy revealed an epithelium consisting of irregular, ectatic thin-walled channels lined by a bland single layered epithelium which expressed both CD31 and D2-40.
No cytokeratin (Cam 5.2) or EMA was expressed in the report. It was concluded that the features highlighted were likely due to an underlying conjunctival haemangioma or lymphangioma.
