A 70-year-old man complained of the sensation of having a foreign body in his left eye in June 1992. A papillary tumor was found growing from the palpebral conjunctiva of the left upper eyelid. On June 30, the conjunctival tumor was excised: the histopathologic findings indicated a malignancy. On August 18, full-thickness excision of the upper eyelid, including the rest of the tumor, was performed. Histopathologic findings showed a well-differentiated sebaceous gland carcinoma. We believe that sebaceous gland carcinoma presenting as conjunctival papilloma, as found in our patient, may be uncommon.
