A number of eyelid tumors are associated with inherited systemic diseases. Early recognition of the nature of these tumors can result not only in prompt appropriate therapy but also, when indicated, a genetic workup that may unveil an underlying systemic disease. The following chapter provides an overview of eyelid tumors and their systemic associations. Where applicable, the inheritance pattern and most recent genetic findings are included.

Chapter.  6384 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Clinical Genetics ; Ophthalmology
