• A 40-year-old man had slow-growing, nodular, amyloid tumors of the eyelid margin associated with recurrent intradermal hemorrhages for 18 years. Medical evaluation revealed no evidence of primary systemic amyloidosis. We suggest that amyloidosis be included in the differential diagnosis of painless, slow-growing, nodular tumors of the eyelid margin.
