A 58-years-male had painless, progressive mass below the left temporal eyebrow from 8 years. It was reddish-blue, pea-sized (10 mm × 10 mm), sessile with few intervening cilia [Figure 1]a. It was non-tender and free from the underlying bone. There was no ulceration or regional lymphadenopathy. The rest of the ophthalmic examination was unremarkable. We kept a working diagnosis of acquired capillary hemangioma and performed an excision biopsy. Histopathology [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c, [Figure 1]d showed a well-circumscribed epidermis tumor arranged in interconnecting trabeculae forming sheets. The cuboidal to polygonal cells showed intracytoplasmic melanin, ductal differentiation, and the desmoplastic reaction confirming an eccrine poroma.
