Abstract

Purpose : To report a case who developed multiple basal cell carcinoma on the eyelids and the face. Case : A 70-year-old female presented with a tumor of the upper and lower right eyelid. She had been engaged in agriculture. She had no history of malignancy, intake of arsenics, or radiation. Findings : The tumor of the upper eyelid showed an elevated margin and was 5 mm by 3 mm in size. The tumor of the lower eyelid was black and flat and was 4 mm by 2 mm in size. Biopsy showed the diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma. She developed 6 tumors on the eyelids and one each on the left cheek, upper lip, and forehead during the ensuing 10 years. The tumor was resected at each occasion and proved to be basal cell carcinoma. Conclusion : The present case illustrates that basal cell carcinoma may recur heterotopically. Prolonged exposure to sunlight, particularly to ultraviolet, is suspected as an underlying cause in this patient.
