Abstract
Background:¦Choristomas are benign, congenital tumours composed of normal tissue in an¦abnormal location. Osseous choristomas represent the rarest form of epibulbar choristomas,¦with now 65 cases reported in the literature. We did a retrospective clinicopathological study¦of all patients with epibulbar osseous choristoma observed at our institution since 1982 and¦updated the last review of the literature.¦History and Signs:¦Three Caucasian male patients, aged between 3 months and 11 years,¦were identified. All osseous choristomas were located under the superotemporal bulbar¦conjunctiva of the right eye.¦Therapy and Outcome:¦All lesions were managed with surgical excision. Histopathology¦revealed the presence of lamellar bone in all cases, one of which was associated with a¦dermolipoma.¦Conclusions:¦We report a small rare case series of 3 epibulbar osseous choristomas and did a¦review of the literature. In one patient, the osteoma was associated with a dermolipoma,¦corresponding to the fourth reported complex choristoma of this type, in an otherwise normal¦eye, in the literature.
