Abstract

Lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) is the least common type of melanoma and most commonly affects the sun-exposed skin of the elderly. We herein report a case of LMM located on the left lower eyelid of an 86-year-old woman. This female patient presented with a longstanding irregular brownish patch containing black macules consistent with LMM. There are several treatment modalities for removing the LMM lesion. However, considering the functional and the aesthetic aspect of the lower eyelid, we performed Mohs micrographic surgery to remove the lesion, and lateral based transposition flap was employed to reconstruct the resultant defect on the left lower eyelid.
