  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 67-year-old man noted foreign body sensation in the right upper eyelid while visiting Nepal for sightseeing. The affected site became painful and swollen during flight back home. When seen one week after onset, a tick was found attached to the lid margin. The tick fell off spontaneously. It was identified as a nymphal specimen of the genus Dermacentor. This is the first reported case of tick infestatin in the eyelid imported from abroad.
