  • Look Inside

We reviewed 31 cases of malignant tumor of the eyelid during the 10 years through 1997. The diagnosis was confirmed histopathologically in all the cases. The series comprised 19 cases of malignant and 12 of benign tumor. Sebaceous gland carcinoma (9 cases) was the most frequent. The ages averaged 56.4 years in the whole series, 69.7 years in malignant cases and 35.4 years in benign cases. All the cases were treated by total extirpation of the tumor and blepharoplasty. The tumor recurred in 6 out of 9 cases with sebaceous gland carcinoma. Eventual cure was obtained in these 6 cases by another surgery and additional radiation in 4 cases. Initial surgery led to cure in all cases of squamous or basal cell carcinoma.
