Abstract

Dermolipoma is considered the second most common benign conjunctival tumor in children after nevus. Usually, dermolipoma located just deep in the superotemporal bulbar and forniceal conjunctiva. The authors describe an uncommon presentation of dermolipoma that arise in the conjunctiva as well as in the skin of the lateral canthus. A 5-month-old baby with lateral limbal lesion involving the conjunctiva and the skin underwent excision biopsy. The pathological examination found a dermolipoma in the conjunctiva as well as in the dermis. The outcomes of the excision were satisfactorily functional and cosmetic. This is only the second case of dermolipoma in the dermis in normal baby that described those far in the literature. This case should raise the awareness that dermolipoma should be considered in differential diagnosis of lesions of the lateral cantus and the periocular skins near it.
