Abstract
Cutaneous horn is a conical shaped overhanging growth from the skin composed of keratinized material. We are presenting a case report on cutaneous horn of upper eyelid in a middle-age man, which developed within a year of onset from a focal swelling and turned out to be benign lesion on biopsy after its excision. Clinical diagnosis of these types of tumours is easy but their malignant potential can only be assessed by a histopathological examination, that determines the further course of treatment.
