Abstract

Cutaneous malignant melanoma metastatic to the choroid, orbit, or vitreous is rare. Metastatic lesions to the eyelid are rare as well. The authors report a case of malignant melanoma metastatic to the eyelid. This was the first sign of tumor recurrence in a patient who was thought to have been successfully treated for a melanoma of the back 3 years previously. The patient died 6 weeks after diagnosis of the eyelid lesion. In the presence of known malignancy, metastasis must be suspected in new eyelid lesions.
