Abstract

Background: Ocular sebaceous carcinoma is an uncommon, aggressive ocular neoplasm with potential for regional and distant metastasis. Case presentation: A 77-year-old woman was found to have a solitary pulmonary lesion 6 years after the initial treatment of sebaceous carcinoma of the eyelid. Video-assisted lung wedge resection of an undetermined pulmonary nodule was carried out successfully. Microscopically, the tumor showed foamy cytoplasm and atypical nuclei, consistent with metastasis of eyelid sebaceous carcinoma. Conclusion: This is the first case report of resected solitary pulmonary metastasis of eyelid sebaceous carcinoma. Pulmonary resection is a good option for the treatment and diagnosis of metastatic eyelid sebaceous carcinoma.
