Objective: To study the histopathological classification and changes of eyelid neoplasms.

Method: In this retrospective case series, the pathological specimens of 2734 cases with eyelid neoplasms examined between 1993-2005 were claimed and analyzed.

Results: There were 1248 eyelid tumors (45.65%) in 2734 cases with eyelid neoplasms, including 875 benign neoplasms (71.11%) and 960 malignant cases (29.89%). The three leading malignant eyelid tumors were basal cell carcinoma, meibomian gland carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma The mean ages of the occurrence of these three tumors were 64.16, 63.30 and 60.38 years old, respectively.

Conclusion: Pathologic classification of eyelid neoplasms is helpful for the pathological diagnosis and provides information for the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases.
