Allergic conjunctival granuloma (ACG) or Splendore–Hoeppli phenomenon (SHP) (asteroid bodies) is characterized by microorganisms (fungi, bacteria, and parasites) or biologically inert substances surrounded by radiating intensely eosinophilic material thought to be due to the deposition of antigen–antibody complexes and debris from the host inflammatory cells. Noninfective pathologies (hypereosinophilic syndrome and ACGs) demonstrate this phenomenon occasionally. The purpose of this case report is to report a case of ACG with SHP in a 59-year-old female with a presumed noninfectious etiology which completely resolved with surgical excision.
