A 85 year old lady came with a recurrent eyelid swelling since last 5 years with a previous history of surgery at the same site. The present swelling was excised and sent for histopathological examination. Apocrine adenocarcinoma arising in the Glands of Moll was diagnosed after histopathological examination.
Materials and Methods: Routine histochemical stains and light microscopy were used for diagnosis. As the morphology was evident on light microscopy, immunohistochemistry was not required.
Conclusion: Malignant tumours arising in the Glands of Moll are a rare occurrence and their early clinical and histopathological diagnosis is of utmost importance for a favorable outcome.
