Arch Ophthalmol. 1998;116(11):1546-1547. doi:10.1001/archopht.116.11.1546

A 24-YEAR-OLD man had a 2-month history of a painless, enlarging eyelid mass. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 OU. Ophthalmic examination revealed an 0.8-cm-diameter elevated, nontender, subcutaneous nodule of the right upper eyelid. The central portion was umbilicated without ulceration (Figure 1). Findings from the remainder of the ophthalmic examination were normal. No similar cutaneous lesions were present elsewhere on the head, neck, trunk, or extremities.
