COUTO JUNIOR, Abelardo de Souza et al. Hidrocystoma: surgical management of cystic lesions of the eyelid. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.3, pp. 368-371. ISSN 0365-0596. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000300012.
This report describes the case of a hidrocystoma of the eyelid and the surgical technique used in the therapeutical management of benign cystic lesions of the eyelids. Hidrocystomas are relatively common benign lesions of the eyelids, principally the lower eyelid. They are more common in females over thirty years of age. Diagnosis is clinical and when there is a single lesion, surgery is the treatment of choice. The surgical technique used should be described in greater detail, since it offers good esthetic results and a low risk of recurrence.
