Abstract

Angiosarcoma is a rare malignancy with only 8 previous reports of eyelid involvement. The authors report 2 further cases, one as a primary lesion and the other as a recurrence from a contiguous area. In both cases, the lesions appeared relatively inconspicuous, and their extent during micrographic excision was considerably larger than anticipated. Although wide surgical margins were obtained and adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy was undertaken, one patient had died from distant metastasis, while the second had distant cutaneous recurrences within 1 year.
