A systemically normal 12-year-old woman presented to our center with a conjunctival lesion in the left eye, which was clinically suggestive of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) and was confirmed by histopathology. OSSN in healthy young children, in absence of systemic risk factors like Xeroderma pigmentosa (XP) or human immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV), is rare, and to the best of our knowledge it has not been reported in the literature so far. This case report indicates that OSSN can occur in healthy young children albeit rarely, and emphasizes the need for a high index of clinical suspicion, comprehensive eye evaluation, and early intervention.
