Tumors
Nodular Hemangioma
Conjunctival Hemangioma

  • Clinical features:
    • Symptoms:
      • Small-sized tumor mostly asymptomatic or cause mild ocular irritation
      • Spontaneous bleeding or bloody tears.
    • Signs:
      • Benign, slowly progressive, bright red patch of vessels with sometimes ill-defined margins
      • Typically rounded, nodular, polypoid or lobulated, may grow and reach an enormous size of mass
      • May be found as an isolated lesion or associated with other ocular capillary hemangiomas or systemic diseases such as Sturge-Weber syndrome
      • Multiple or multi focalized hemangiomas are usually independent and separated from one another with little connection with the surrounding vessels.
  • Management:
    • Observation for increase in size, number of lesions, and morphological changes.
    • Surgical excision, electrolysis and thermocoagulation have been used with success.
