A 44-year-old male patient first noticed a pain-free light red swelling of the right eye in 1983. Based on the results of the early indocyanine green angiography, MRI and sonography, a racemose hemangioma of the conjunctiva was diagnosed. Although a racemose hemangioma already exists at birth, it remains clinically silent for a long time and symptoms often first appear in early adulthood. In this patient external surgical excision was terminated due to substantial bleeding. A symptomatic treatment in the sense of surface care is considered to be the best option. © Springer Medizin Verlag 2009.
