To report a case of eccrine spiradenoma that presented as an eyelid nodule. CASE SUMMARY: A 61-year-old female presented with a mass in the right upper lid margin; the onset time was unknown. An ophthalmic examination revealed no abnormalities except the eyelid nodule. The nodule was 3 mm in size with a firm, smooth surface and light pinkish color, and was located near the lid margin. Excision and biopsy of the nodule was performed. The pathological findings of the specimen obtained showed islands of 2 types of lobular cells. Larger, paler cells were grouped around the central area, darker and smaller cells on the periphery. These findings were compatible with eccrine spiradenoma. CONCLUSIONS: Eccrine spiradenoma should be considered a differential diagnosis of a solitary eyelid tumor.
Key Words: Eccrine spiradenoma;Eyelid mass
