A 68-year-old woman had a painless and slow-growing mass on the left lower eyelid for 10 months. On inspection, there was a large, 18 mm × 12 mm, oval, cystic mass arising from the medial lower eyelid. The overlying stretched skin showed prominent vessels [Figure 1a]. On palpation, the cyst was non-tender, freely mobile (non-adherent to tarsus) and pedunculated. A brilliant transillumination was elicited suggesting clear fluid contents of the cyst [Figure 1b]. Lacrimal irrigation confirmed a patent canalicular and nasolacrimal duct system. Lacrimal punctum sparing, in toto surgical excision of the cyst was performed. Histopathology confirmed the clinical diagnosis of eccrine hidrocystoma.{Figure 1a}{Figure 1b}
