Cholesterol granuloma is an uncommon entity, occurring typically in the supero-temporal orbit. Recurrence has only rarely been reported. We describe a case of recurrent cholesterol granuloma in a 48-year-old-man to illustrate the clinical features of the condition, and to highlight the importance of complete resection to prevent recurrence.
