Abstract

A 70-year-old man had a rapid growth of a pigmented eyelid lesion, previously stationary for at least 50 years. Because of the suspicion of malignant melanoma, the lesion which resembled a cutaneous horn was excised. Histologic examination demonstrated a benign epithelial tumor, inverted follicular keratosis.
