An otherwise healthy 8-year-old girl presented with a relatively rapidly growing reddish mass on the caruncle of the left eye. On external examination, a pink, fleshy, pedunculated lesion with telangiectatic vessels on the surface was seen over the left caruncle (Figure 1). Her best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 OU. Her ocular motility was intact in both eyes. The results of the examination of the anterior and posterior segments were within normal limits.
