Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 52-year-old man presented with a 5-year history of multiple bilateral apocrine hidrocystomas of the eyelids. For the past 3 years, the patient had developed a mechanical ectropion of the right inferior eyelid secondary to progressive enlargement of the lesions. Different therapeutic options were discussed with the patient. Surgical excision of all lesions was performed under local anesthesia. There was no recurrence after 15 months of follow-up.
