Abstract
Review of 8 cases of heterotopic lacrimal gland tissue in epibulbar conjunctival
region disclosed frequent mixture of pilosebaceous structure, adipose tissue, smooth muscle,
etc. The term complex choristoma appears appropriate to designate a mixture of this
variety, although each element can be predominant in a single lesion.
Complex choristoma containing lacrimal gland was commonly seen in both childhood and
adulthood but had no sex predilection. The occurrence was frequent in bulbar conjunctiva
and limbus although orbit and cornea were also the sites of involvement in some. The most
frequent element other than lacrimal gland was fibroadipose tissue. One case showed
nevocellular nevus involving the ducts of heterotopic lacrimal gland.
