Surgical removal of left congenital limbo corneal mass by peripheral lamellar keratoplasty (LKP)using preserved remaining corneasclera graft from other recipient was effective for the treatmentof limbocorneal fibroma. A case of 17 year old Chinese girl with a corneal mass since her birth on4:00 'O clock position showed a size of about 2–3 mm. The patient was treated with total resectionof the mass with part of Corneascleral Limbus and partial cornea with adjacent tissue and wasdiagnosed as fibroma after histopathology examination. After follow-up for 6 month, the visionand eye ball movements were normal and the graft was in normal position.Keywords: Congenital, Lamellar Keratoplasty, Fibroma, Refraction, Cosmetic
