Abstract

Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare neuroendocrine tumour that may affect the eyelid. There is no consensus on the optimal treatment for eyelid MCC, and management remains controversial. Here we present our experience in a case of eyelid MCC treated by Mohs' micrographic surgery. Although this treatment has been advocated for general skin MCCs, there is very little experience with this technique in relation to eyelid MCCs. We suggest that Mohs' micrographic surgery may be an appropriate method of treating MCCs of the eyelid.
