Osseous metaplasia is the formation of bone within a different tissue. It is a rare phenomenon that occurs primarily in breast tissue and abdominopelvic organs. Intraocular osseous metaplasia is also common. Osseous metaplasia in eyelid is rare entity. We present the case of osseous metaplasia of eyelid in a 6-year-old child. This is the first case of osseous metaplasia occurring in the pediatric population. This case also highlights the importance of coordination between ophthalmologist and pediatrician to obtain relevant history, perform imaging, and hematological test to rule out primary and secondary causes of such swellings to reach accurate diagnosis.
