Six patients with mucinous eccrine carcinoma of the eyelid were identified in the case records of the L.F. Montgomery Laboratory. Five of these patients had undergone Mohs micrographic surgery after their initial diagnosis. Follow-up ranged from three months to eight years. Four patients with negative margins of excision had no evidence of recurrence, one patient was lost to follow-up and one patient with positive margins of excision had two recurrences after incomplete excision of the tumor. We recommend surgical excision of mucinous eccrine carcinoma of the eyelid with histologic monitoring of the surgical margins of resection.
