An 81-year-old gentleman underwent biopsy for an eyelid lump of 1-month duration. Findings of (A) sessile, reddish, warty mass with a broad base, (B) loss of eyelashes and tarsal conjunctival involvement, (C) exophytic and papillomatous growth (square) with hyperkeratosis and parakeratosis (arrow), and (D) rete pegs (circle) composed of well-differentiated squamous epithelial cells (star) without atypia and mitotic figures with the bulbous expansion of rete pegs were noted [Figure 1]. The superficial layer showed a benign appearance while only the deeper layers showed the malignant changes. Verrucous carcinoma is a rare, slow-growing, warty variant of squamous cell carcinoma which invades contiguous structures but rarely metastasizes.[1]
