This book provides a practical, superbly illustrated guide to the clinical diagnosis of eyelid tumors and the surgical procedures used for tumor excision and eyelid reconstruction. In this completely revised and updated Second Edition, there are new chapters on pathology and radiosurgery, procedures have been amended to reflect current practice, all the surgical illustrations have been redrawn in full color, and selected clinical photographs have been added or replaced.

The first section of the book covers differential diagnosis and features over 100 full color photographs of benign and malignant eyelid tumors and inflammatory conditions, accompanied by concise descriptions of the clinical presentation and the course of these lesions. This section is designed to enable the clinician to distinguish accurately lesions requiring biopsy and/or surgical removal from those that should be treated medically or observed for changes.

In the second section, the author describes the surgical anatomy of the eyelids and surrounding structures, and provides currently accepted procedures for eyelid tumor biopsies, the most effective techniques for tumor removal, and upper and lower lid reconstruction. Key steps are illustrated by over 200 full color drawings and photographs.

With its emphasis on the more common conditions, and its clear, user-friendly and practical approach, Eyelid Tumors is a valuable source of reference for ophthalmic clinicians and surgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, dermatologists and pathologists.


Well written, practical and concise. Excellent colour illustrations and photographs fill this book and complement its easily readable text…an exceptional resource in managing patients with eyelid tumors.
