Ocular adnexal lymphoproliferative lesions can appear in the conjunctiva, orbit, eyelid and lacrimal gland. They can be both primary or secondary and range from benign lymphoid hyperplasia (BLH) to malignant lymphoma. Nodular lesions in conjunctiva are not very common in childhood. So a high index of suspicion of these lesions should be in mind while evaluating them. We present this case to create awareness about this lesion and the need for follow up in such children.
