Malignant tumours of the face are usually seen in the periocular region, mainly on eyelids most commonly in the inferior eyelid, medial canthus and superior eyelid, respectively. The prime treatment for eyelid malignant tumours is the total excision of the lesion with frozen section control or by Mohs Micrographic surgery. The postoperative defects should be reconstructed judicially taking care that the near normal anatomical and functional recovery is achieved. The Cutler-Beard flap procedure, a good alternative in the reconstruction of superior near-total eyelid defects resulted in good restoration of anatomy and function in our patient. We report a case of an eyelid growth persisting for 2 year duration mimicking a chalazion. Clinically the eyelid mass had malignant features and hence was planned for wide excision with frozen section of margins. After confirming the tumour free margins, we performed reconstruction of the eyelid defect with Cutler Beard flap procedure. She was followed up for one year which showed no local recurrence or regional/distant metastases.
