A fleshy papule on the eyelid


Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia is an uncommon tumor affecting the head and neck region. It usually presents as solitary or multiple erythematous or brownish papules and nodules. It is considered a reactive angioproliferative disorder by some, whereas others believe it to be a neoplastic growth. Involvement of the eyelid is a rare occurrence. We report an instance of angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia involving the eyelid in a 19-year-old woman with review of literature.
