Abstract

Purpose:

To report a single case of acquired sessile hemangioma of the conjunctiva which resolved after treatment with topical timolol.

Methods:

Case report and literature review.

Results:

A 77-year-old African American woman developed an acquired sessile hemangioma of the conjunctiva of the right eye. She was followed for primary open-angle glaucoma, and the lesion was monitored for 12 months without change. Topical timolol-dorzolamide was then added to her glaucoma medication regimen twice daily. On follow-up examination 6 months later, the lesion had completely resolved.

Conclusions:

In this case report, an acquired sessile hemangioma of the conjunctiva resolved with topical timolol therapy.
