A 30-year-old Indian woman presented with 1-year history of erythematous, mildly scaly plaque on right eyelid. The lesion started as a small papule, which gradually evolved into a plaque. The lesion was asymptomatic and there were no ocular complaints. Past medical history was insignificant and the patient gave no history of preceding trauma. She was otherwise healthy. Examination revealed a 2 1 cm erythematous, mildly scaly, indurated plaque with irregular well-defined border on right eyelid [Figure - 1]. A small depressed area of scarring was present on the lesion. There was no lymphadenopathy. A skin biopsy specimen was obtained [Figure - 2],[Figure - 3].
