Solitary trichoepithelioma of the eyelid is a very rare tumor, which needs to be differentiated from basaloid epithelioma and basal cell carcinoma. Diagnosis is based on clinical and histopathological examination. We present a case of an eyelid trichoepithelioma presenting as a long standing nodule with associated dermatochalasis. Although rare, this entity should be kept in the differential diagnosis of chronic, firm, nodular eyelid lesions.
