Abstract

We present the case of a rare histological eyelid tumor in an 18-year-old female with a painful erythematous nodule in her upper right eyelid for which conservative treatment was initiated; however, she suffered a relapse and then a biopsy was performed. Histopathology examination revealed an epithelioid leiomyoma. Rare tumors may develop in the eyelids, mainly of the stromal type. In cases of eyelid tumors, biopsy and histopathological examination are mandatory to confirm clinical diagnosis and treatment.
