Angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia (ALHE) is an inflammatory disorder characterized by benign vasoproliferative lesions. Although these lesions are typically found around the ear and external auditory canal, there are several studies that present cases with ocular involvement. In this report we present the first case of ALHE with ocular and sinus involvement in Turkish literature.
