A 41-year-old woman previously diagnosed with generalized eruptive keratoacanthomas of Grzybowski type presented with bilateral lower eyelid cicatrical ectropions. She had previously undergone multiple resections of syringomatous adenomas of both nipples, facial keratoacanthomas, and a lower left lip squamous cell carcinoma. Her facial and periocular skin was thickened with a cobblestone appearance. Cicatricial ectropions involved both upper and lower eyelids. Donor skin was harvested from the dorsum of the foot as this was the only disease-free area on her body, and she achieved a stable result with reduced tearing and improved appearance.
