Ectopic cilia, or lash follicles situated over abnormal sites, are an extremely rare entity. Here, we report the case of a 6-year-old-boy who presented with ectopic cilia over the left upper eyelid along with a positive family history. Dermoscopy revealed discreet terminal hair emerging from the individual hair follicles surmounted over a diffuse structureless whitish-yellow zone and a few vellus hairs in the surrounding normal skin. These hairs, on histopathological examination, had multiple pilosebaceous follicular units embedded in a desmoplastic stroma with multiple eccrine sweat glands. Other incidental findings included lichen nitidus and myopia.
