Abstract: An unusual presentation of sebaceous carcinoma of the eyelid is described in a 96-year-old man who presented with a large papillomatous palpebral conjunctival lesion in the left upper eyelid. The patient underwent a shave excision of the lesion, followed by a full thickness excision with paraffin section margin control. Histopathology revealed a sebaceous gland carcinoma with no evidence of pagetoid spread. Although rare, sebaceous gland carcinoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a conjunctival papilloma.
