Chondroid syringoma or pleomorphic adenoma of the skin is a rare tumor arising from the eccrine glands. It is an asymptomatic slow growing tumor. We report a case of chondroid syringoma of the lower eyelid margin and lateral canthus in a middle-aged man, which was excised. The lid was reconstructed by lateral cantholysis and advancement fl ap for lid reconstruction. A possible diagnosis of chondroid syringoma should be borne in mind when solitary, fi rm tumors of the lid are presented.
