Article Information

Eyelid lesions are common. Pattern recognition and knowledge of common characteristics aid in the assessment for malignancy. Ulceration, irregularity, telangiectasia, pearly appearance, and  loss of eyelid margin architecture suggest malignancy. The authors review these signs and detail some common eyelid malignancies and treatment options for more advanced disease including novel targeted therapies.
