PURPOSE: To describe clinical and pathologic features of an iridociliary lacrimal gland choristoma in which the diagnosis was made clinically and confirmed histopathologically. METHODS: Case report with clinical, ultrasound biomicroscopic, and histopathologic observations. RESULTS: We examined a 12-month-old male for a large iris mass that had been present since birth. We suspected it to be a lacrimal gland choristoma based on characteristic clinical features. The lesion was removed by iridocyclectomy, and the diagnosis of lacrimal gland choristoma was confirmed. CONCLUSION: Intraocular lacrimal gland choristoma has unique clinical features that should suggest the diagnosis. Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Inc.
