[Lymphomatoid papulosis of the eyelid].

[Article in French]


Lymphomatoid papulosis is an infrequent skin disease characterized by lesions which are clinically benign and histologically malignant. We report a case of lymphomatoid papulosis of the lid: the patient was 62 year old and the lesion appeared as a rapidly growing ulcerated tumor of the outer canthus with histological features of malignity. Complete removal of the tumor was performed and the lid was reconstructed during the same time. Similar preexisting and self healing skin lesions helped to make subsequently the accurate diagnosis.
