Subepidermal calcified nodules
Pediatric benign lid lesions; Subepidermal calcified nodules
Subepidermal calcified nodules (SCNs) are uncommon, benign lesions usually presenting in childhood which occasionally involve the eyelids. Only a handful of cases have been reported in the ophthalmologic literature. We present 2 cases, one in a 7-year-old Hispanic boy, the other in a 13-year-old African American boy, with eyelid lesions which were clinically thought to be possible juvenile xanthogranuloma, but which on histopathologic examination showed the characteristic features of SCNs.
