Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study the histopathological classification of eyelid tumor. METHOD: The pathological specimens of 3,510 cases with eyelid tumor examined between 1953-1992 were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS The 5 leading malignant lid tumors were basal cell carcinomas (430 cases, 37.6\%), meibomian gland carcinomas (363, 31.7\%), squamous cell carcinomas (216 cases, 18.9\%), melanomas (56 cases, 4.9\%) and malignant lymphomas (21 cases, 1.8\%). The 5 leading benign lid tumors including papillomas (658 cases, 27.9\%), pigmented nevi (578 cases, 24.4\%), cysts (427 cases, 18.1\%), angiomas (222 cases, 9.4\% including 10 lymphangiomas) and verrucae (212 cases, 9.0\%). Rare tumors of the eyelid included one case of each of the following tumors: reticulum cell sarcoma, adenocystic carcinoma, malignant mesenchymoma, mucinous adenocarcinoma, Bowen's disease, basosquamous carcinoma, basosebacious carcinoma, teratoma, granular cell tumor (myoblastoma), angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia, osteoma, etc. CONCLUSION: The classification and differentiation in type of eyelid tumor are beneficial to the histopathological diagnosis.
