Abstract

A 57-year-old woman presented with a recurrent lower eyelid growth that was found to be a striated muscle hamartoma on surgical biopsy. This is a rare entity in adults with no history of congenital abnormality. Several other rare, benign lesions may be clinically similar and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of an eyelid lesion containing striated muscle.
