    ABSTRACT: The skin covering the eyelids is very important to ophthalmologists, dermatologists, and pathologists. Virtually any inflammatory process or cutaneous neoplasm occurring in the skin elsewhere in the body may, at times, occur in the periorbital or eyelid skin; however, some diseases are quite specific to this area. This chapter includes, but is not limited to, the normal anatomy and histology, congenital abnormalities, eyelid disorders signaling systemic diseases, the inflammatory conditions with prevalence to the eyelid region, and a wide range of neoplasms. Various clinical and microscopic pictures complement the text descriptions in this chapter. The purpose is to guide the reader in learning eyelid pathology.
