  • Look Inside

 We observed four cases of sebaceous gland carcinoma of the eyelid. The series comprised one female aged 79 years and 3males aged 38,62 and 71 years respectively. All the cases had been treated as recurrent chalazion for 2 to 5 years before visiting us. Each patient was treated by extensive full-thickness resection of the eyelid. The excised specimen was examined histopathologically on the spot to confirm the absence of tumor at its edge. The eyelid was reconstructed to replace the tarsoconjunctival defect. There has been no recurrence or metastasis during the follow-up averaging 4 years. The patients have been doing well regarding the eyelid function and appearance. We advocate histopathological examinations in cases of recurrent chalazion regardless of the age of the patient.
