Synthetic fiber granulomas, also known as "Teddy Bear" granulomas or "Fuzz Ball granulomas," are usually seen in childhood. We present a case of a 5-year-old child with a "Fuzz Ball" granuloma of the conjunctiva. The resected specimen was processed routinely. The use of polarized light during microscopic examination of the resected tissue made the diagnosis evident due to the prominent birefringence of the synthetic foreign material fibers.
