Abstract:  Excision of an epibulbar choristoma followed by amniotic membrane grafting was performed on a 3-month-old baby who presented with nevus sebaceous syndrome. Upon histopathologic examination, the excised mass was seen to be a complex choristoma, a rare ocular tumor. Amniotic membrane transplantation is currently the most acceptable modality of treatment of limbal choristoma, with good cosmetic outcome.
