Abstract

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer in humans and is frequently found in the periocular region. It is the most
common type of eyelid cancer, generally characterized by slow growth with rare metastasis and has an excellent prognosis with
current surgical techniques. This is a case report of left lower eyelid basal cell carcinoma for which surgical excision with eyelid reconstruction was performed. Histopathological examination of resected mass was consistent with nodulo-ulcerative basal cell carcinoma.
Early diagnosis and management of suspicious lesions is important to ensure the clinical result.
