Abstract

Sebaceous cell carcinoma is a rare cutaneous aggressive tumor arising from the sebaceous glands. It's almost exclusive site of occurrence is the eyelid but it has also been reported primarily in other sites, such as the parotid region. It is one of the most dangerous tumors, due to masquerading as inflammatory conditions, such as blepharoconjunctivitis, superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis or chalazion. It may also be misdiagnosed as other malignancies, while the incidence of metastasis is high-about 41%. In our article we report a rare case of a recurrent sebaceous gland carcinoma of the eyelid with metastasis to the parotid gland and the regional lymph nodes. In the review of the literature, diagnosis, treatment and the prognosis of this rare entity are described.
