Atypical fibroxanthoma is an uncommon neoplasm of the superficial soft tissue that occurs in actinically damaged skin of elderly patients. It is characterized by a pleomorphic histologic appearance but has a generally favorable clinical course. These lesions are usually small in size and rarely occur on the eyelid. The authors present an unusual case of neglected giant atypical fibroxanthoma of the eyelid in an elderly patient.
