Abstract

Sebaceous gland carcinoma (SGC) in the eyelid is a malignant and relatively uncommon tumor accounting for less than 1% of all cutaneous malignancies. It is a slow growing tumor with a multifocal origin and predilection for upper eyelid. High recurrence rates and tendency for intra-epithelial spread, loco-regional and distant metastases makes it important to recognize SGC and consider it as a differential diagnosis in an eyelid lesion. We report a case of 66 year old female with SGC, where lesion recurred after excision. Early diagnosis of SGC, institution of aggressive primary treatment and follow up is of paramount importance to prevent its recurrence.
