The authors report a 19-year-old woman with a cluster of ectopic cilia located in the temporal aspect of her right upper eyelid associated with symptomatic secretion from the cutaneous ostea of the cilia. Histologic examination revealed subcutaneous connective tissue interspersed with pilosebaceous follicles and apocrine glands. No evidence of lacrimal gland ducts or acini was found.
