A 10-year-old girl child presented with a chronic history of redness and itching in her right eye. Slit-lamp examination revealed two small reddish flat masses with few caterpillar hair-like structures in the lower palpebral tarsal conjunctiva simulating ophthalmia nodosa. However, histopathology of the excised mass showed a lesion composed of stratified squamous epithelium with hair follicles and adnexal tissues embedded in fibro collagenous substance compatible with dermoid choristoma. Different types of choristoma in bulbar conjunctiva, eyelid, and orbit have been mentioned in earlier literature. Palpebral conjunctival dermoid choristoma has been rarely described previously and the current case is a unique presentation of that entity.
