Abstract. Purpose:To present a ten-year review of malignant eyelid tumor at Juntendo University Hospital. Cases and Method:This retrospective study was made on 10 cases of malignant eyelid tumor diagnosed histopathologically during 10 years from 2004 through 2013. A total of 122 cases of eyelid tumor were submi-tted to histopathological study in the same period. Findings:The series comprised 6 males and 4 females. The age ranged from 7 to 86 years, average 67 years. There were 4 cases of basal cell carcinoma including one with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome, 3 cases of squamous cell carcinoma, 2 cases of sebaceous gland carcinoma, and one case of malignant lymphoma. The tumor was located in the upper eyelid in 8 cases and in the lower eyelid in 2 cases. Recurrence occurred in one case each of basal and squamous cell carcinoma. Conclusion:Malignant eyelid tumor was mainly composed of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and sebaceous cell carcinoma. Six out of ten cases of malignant eyelid tumor had been clinically diagnosed as benign before histopathological examinations.
