Recurrent chalazion may be associated with bad lid hygiene but can have clinical changes which lead to the suspicion of a more dangerous entity. Particularly in elderly patients, recurrence of chalazion should be suspected to have carcinomatous changes. We present the case of a 52-year-old woman with presentation of recurrent chalazion which turned out to be sebaceous gland carcinoma of the lid. Sebaceous gland carcinoma usually presents as a small firm nodule resembling chalazion, and majority of the premalignant and malignant lesions misdiagnosed as chalazion are primary cases. Hence, the need of histopathological examination in every such case cannot be undermined.
