A 50-year-old female presented with gradually increasing, pink nodular lesion on the temporal bulbar conjunctiva of the left eye, noticed in the past 15 days. She denied any history of trauma or similar episodes in the past or concurrent systemic illness. The lesion did not change after a 2-weeks long topical steroid course. It was then surgically excised. Histopathological analysis revealed lymphoid follicles with proliferating blood vessels lined up by plump endothelial cells with mixed infiltrate containing numerous eosinophils. Based on these findings, diagnosis of Kimura's disease (KD) was established. KD is a rare, chronic inflammatory disorder of possible allergic or autoimmune etiology which has been rarely described in conjunctiva.
