We report a rare case of warthin tumor occurring in lacrimal caruncle. Upon review of the literature, we find only four cases of warthin tumor in eye, two cases in the caruncle, one case in lacrimal gland, and one in eyelid margin. We treated a 71-year-old woman who had a fish-like mass in the caruncle of the left eye for half a year. The pathological diagnosis of warthin tumor was made after surgical resection of the tumor. After local surgical resection, the patient was in complete remission.
