Abstract

A healthy 31-year-old female presented with an elevated vascular lesion on the right lower eyelid margin. Histology results from excisional biopsy demonstrated a range of intradermally nested atypical melanocytes with negative staining for BRCA1-associated protein 1, confirming the diagnosis of Wiesner nevus. Wiesner nevi may be a cutaneous hallmark of the BRCA1-associated protein 1–associated cancer susceptibility syndrome, and to our knowledge, this is the first report of such a lesion presenting anywhere on the ocular adnexa.
