Hidradenoma papilliferum is a benign adnexal tumor originating from apocrine glands of skin. It is commonly seen in the anogenital region of middle-aged women and presents as an asymptomatic, slow-growing, solitary nodule. Rarely this tumor occurs at extragenital sites and is called ectopic hidradenoma papilliferum. Although head and neck is a common site for this group, only 3 cases in the upper eyelid have been described. We present the first case of ectopic hidradenoma papilleferum presenting as a cystic swelling in the lower eyelid. A brief review of literature is included.
