• An 84-year-old man had a verrucous lesion of the left lower eyelid that caused progressive ectropion. Cultures of the lesion taken at the time of surgical excision demonstrated Blastomyces dermatitidis. Histologically, the excised tissue demonstrated pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia, a characteristic change of cutaneous blastomycosis.
