Abstract

Basosquamous cell carcinoma is a subtype of basal cell cancer. It is known to be more aggressive than basal cell cancer. A 70-year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic for evaluation of cosmetic problems caused by masses on both lower eyelids for at least two years. The mass excision from and reconstruction of lower eyelids were performed. Histopathological examination of the resected masses was consistent with basosquamous cell carcinoma. We present a case of basosquamous cell carcinoma involving bilateral lower eyelids with a different clinical appearance. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of bilateral basosquamous cell carcinoma in a patient.
