A 68-year-old man presented with significant, asymptomatic, unilateral eyelash poliosis, not associated with any ophthalmic or systemic conditions. He reported that this started about 40 years ago with a few lashes in the central portion of his eyelid and that adjacent eyelashes subsequently became involved over the next 4 to 5 days. He had normal ophthalmologic and neurologic examinations with no other relevant medical history reported. The case might be an unusual presentation of a halo nevus. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first such case reported regarding the eyelashes. The case and relevant literature are presented.
