OBJECTIVE: To report 3 patients with conjunctival cavernous hemangioma in association with multiple recurrent episodes of subconjunctival hemorrhage.
DESIGN: Retrospective clinical case series.
PARTICIPANTS: We studied 3 patients, 11, 13, and 21 years of age, respectively, each of whom had a small, solitary, and irregular multiloculated vascular mass on the temporal bulbar conjunctiva of the right eye. The tumours were excised for cosmetic reasons.
METHODS: The medical records and histopathologic slides of the 3 patients were reviewed.
RESULTS: Histopathologic examination showed that the tumours were composed of large, congested blood vessels separated by thin connective tissue. The patients did not have any recurrence of the tumour or hemorrhage.
CONCLUSIONS: Cavernous hemangioma had a tendency to develop rapidly in young people on the temporal bulbar conjunctiva of the right eye, causing recurrent subconjunctival hemorrhages.
