Inferomedial dermolipoma with ectopic lacrimal gland

Ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery | 7 Nov 2012

S Ferri and R Shinder
Abstract
A 25-year-old woman presented with a painless inferomedial subconjunctival mass in the right eye. The growth had been present since birth and had been increasing in size for over 1 year. Incisional biopsy with debulking proved the lesion to be a dermolipoma extending behind the globe that contained ectopic lacrimal gland tissue. The authors describe a very rare case of a complex dermolipoma arising in an atypical location and containing ectopic lacrimal gland.
