Warthin’s tumor is an extremely rare lesion of the lacrimal caruncle, and ophthalmologists may never encounter this lesion in their careers. In addition, pathologists see this lesion in salivary gland tissues, but not in specimens submitted from the anatomic eye. Here, we report a rare case of a Warthin’s tumor originating in a lacrimal caruncle.
