Reactive lymphoid hyperplasia 1 month after LASIK surgery.

AbstractPURPOSE:
This study was conducted to investigate a case of reactive lymphoid hyperplasia following laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK).
METHODS:
A 31-year-old man who underwent LASIK presented 1 month later with a fleshy conjunctival (plical) tumor in the left eye. An excision biopsy of the tumor was performed.
RESULTS:
Histopathology of the excised tumor revealed reactive lymphoid hyperplasia.
DISCUSSION:
Conjunctival lymphomas can masquerade as chronic conjunctivitis and can be preceded by reactive lymphoid hyperplasia. It is important to identify and differentiate these tumors. This report describes the unusual occurrence of a lymphoid conjunctival tumor after LASIK eye surgery.
