Ocular choristomas are uncommon. In the choroid, two types of ectopic tissues have been described, smooth muscle and osseous tissue, being the latter the most frequent. Choroidal osteomas are benign ossifying tumors, mostly unilateral, with unknown etiology. They are usually found in young women and are rarely diagnosed in infants. Herein we present an 8-year-old girl with congenital unilateral limbal dermoid who, over the years, developed bilateral choroidal osteomas outside the framework of systemic diseases.
