Abstract

A 10-year-old boy presented with painless, gradually increasing mass in right upper lid without preceding trauma for the past 2 months. On examination, the mass was bluish red, soft to firm in consistency which bleeds on touch. Contrast-enhanced CT showed a well-defined heterogeneously enhancing mass lesion without any continuity with the underlying bone or the orbital cavity. Complete excision of the mass was performed under general anaesthesia, subsequent histopathological examination showed findings consistent with an acquired variant of capillary haemangioma. At the end of 1 year, patient is cosmetically fine without any recurrence/morbidity.
