PURPOSE: To report a case of conjunctival granuloma formation in response to lodgment of an insect wing. METHOD: Case report and review of the literature. RESULTS Granuloma formation in the conjunctiva can occur following lodgment of an insect wing. This can cause the patient chronic redness, discharge, and discomfort. CONCLUSIONS: Small foreign bodies with relatively little mass and large surface area can evade the normal protective mechanisms for removal of a foreign body and give rise to a chronic inflammatory response.
