We show that conformal blocks simplify greatly when there is a large difference between two of the scaling dimensions for external operators. In particular the spacetime dimension only appears in an overall constant which we determine via recurrence relations. Connections to the conformal bootstrap program and the AdS / CFT correspondence are also discussed.
