Background: Eyelid lesions are quite common and most of the surgically excised ophthalmic specimens submitted for histopathologic evaluation. The present study assessed the clinicopathological correlation of eyelid lesions.

Materials & Methods: eighty two subjects having eyelid damage of both sexes were involved as well as parameters like site of lesions, gross characteristics, and histopathological diagnoses alongside histological observations, marginal tissue involvement among carcinogenic lesions were documented. Haematoxylin as well as eosin stained slides were made.

Results: Out of 82 patients, males were 52 and females were 30. Common benign lesions were seen in 56 cases. Chalazion was seen in 20, Nevus in 12, Papiloma in 10, Sebaceous cyst in 3, Wart in 4, Benign adnexal tumor in 3, Neurofibroma in 2 and Molluscum contagiosum in 2 cases. Malignant lesions were seen in 26 cases. Basal cell carcinoma was seen in 4, Sebaceous gland carcinoma in 10, Squamous cell carcinoma in 4, Lymphoma in 3, Melanoma in 3 and Adenocarcinoma in 2 cases. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).

Conclusion: The presence of various histological elements makes eyelids the origin of a wide range of lesions. Most common benign lesions was Chalazion and malignant lesion was Sebaceous gland carcinoma.
