Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin malignancy and is found in skin exposed to the sun. It is rarely seen bilaterally in ears, ankles or breasts. There has been no literature about bilateral basal cell carcinoma of lower eyelids symmetrically. A 68-year-old male patient had been suffering from two lesions on his lower eyelids for two years. The first lesion appeared on the right lower eyelid two years ago and got larger. Then the second lesion occurred on the left lower eyelid a year and a half ago. The patient had worked as a farmer for fifteen years. Physical examination revealed ulcerated lesions, with surrounding hyperemia, 12 x 6 mm in size, on both lower eyelids. Both lesions were excised and repaired with lateral malar flap+mucosal graft. One year later, there no evidence of recurrence, and postoperative scars were functionally and cosmetically acceptable. We present a case of bilateral basal cell carcinoma involving both lower eyelids symmetrically, reviewing the literature.
