Conjunctival capillary haemangiomas are very rare above 40 years of age group, with few cases reported in the literature. Adding to the scanty literature of this uncommon vascular tumour, we present the case of a 45-year-old man who presented with a nodular growth in the conjunctiva without any associated systemic diseases or cutaneous lesion. Excisional biopsy of the mass was done. Histopathological examination showed lobulated capillary haemangioma which is very rare in this age group.
