Sebaceous lesions encompass a spectrum from benign lesions to disfiguring malignant lesions. Eyelid sebaceomas are extremely rare and only two definite cases are described in the English literature, whereas sebaceous adenomas occur in the eyelids more commonly and can be distinguished easily from sebaceous gland carcinoma by its clinical and histological appearance. We describe two cases of eyelid lesions that clinically resembled a possible malignant eyelid tumor. In both the cases, frozen section report was suggestive of a well-differentiated sebaceous gland carcinoma. However, histopathology examination of the permanent section was consistent with the diagnosis of sebaceoma and sebaceous adenoma respectively.
