This is a case of eccrine acrospiroma with malignant potential of a 90 year-old female with mass over the ventral aspect of the left upper eyelid with bleeding, ulceration, and discharge. This is a rare presentation of histopathological that confirmed eccrine acrospiroma so as to alert the clinician about the differential diagnosis of mass over eye lids.
