The following case presented an interesting problem: that of removing a tumor which had invaded the inner two thirds of the lower lid, preserving the eye, which was normal, and rebuilding the lower lid. This was done with a very satisfactory result.
REPORT OF CASE
Mr. V. H., aged 65, had had a small tumor of the inner portion of the right lower lid for several years. This had been enlarging considerably for three or four months until it had assumed the size shown in figure 1.
The tumor mass had invaded the full thickness of the lid, including the margin, and was attached to the skin and conjunctiva, from the medial canthal ligament, temporally to the junction of the middle and lateral thirds of the edge of the right lower lid. It measured 3 cm. in its long axis by 16 mm. across, and was about 11 mm.
