Limbal dermoids These  are benign congenital tumors that contain choristomatous tissue (tissue not found normally at that site). They appear most frequently at the inferior temporal quadrant of the corneal limbus. However, they may occasionally present entirely within the cornea or may be confined to the conjunctiva. A dermoid cyst is a non-cancerous growth that can occur on or near the eye. Dermoids often contain skin, hair and/or fat. There are two kinds of dermoids: Orbital dermoids. An orbital dermoid is typically found under the skin, near the bones of the eye socket, at end of the eyebrow or next to the nose.
