A 2-year-old girl with tearing and redness of her right eye for the past 2 to 3 days. Her parents stated that she occasionally rubbed her right eye and squinted in the sunlight. The child had been healthy and had no other acute concerns. Prior medical history was unremarkable, and review of systems was negative.
Visual acuity central, steady, and maintained in both eyes. On inspection, child appeared photophobic in the right eye—the eye would easily tear with ophthalmologic examination. Right temporal conjunctiva injected with a raised whitish lesion. Minimal clear, nonpurulent discharge. No eye pain or swelling of surrounding soft tissues. Remaining eye examination findings completely normal.
