Sebaceous carcinomas of the eyelid are uncommon neoplasms. If excised early, the prognosis is good. Therefore, familiarity with their cytological appearance is of paramount clinical importance. We describe cytological appearance of a sebaceous carcinoma of the eyelid and relevant differential diagnosis. A 45 year-old-female presented with a swelling of right upper eyelid. Aspiration cytology showed sheets of cells with abundant foamy cytoplasm and pleomorphic nuclei. Histopathological examination of the excision biopsy specimen was confirmatory.
