Author information

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Genova, Genova, Italy.


A 57-year-old white man presented with extensive bilateral, symmetric, confluent papules involving the upper and lower eyelids, causing visual impairment and cosmetic deformity. Surgical debulking of the papules was initially performed, but the lesion rapidly recurred and enlarged. Histopathologic examination revealed cutaneous amyloidosis. Six months later, extensive excision of the upper eyelid lesions was required to restore normal visual function.
