Purpose: To describe a case of the largest reported microcystic adnexal carcinoma of the eyebrow in an 89-year-old woman and to review the literature regarding the periorbital occurrence of this tumor.

Methods: Case report and literature review.

Results: This case was treated with primary excision and radiotherapy, with no clinical signs of recurrence in the past 6 months.

Conclusions: Microcystic adnexal carcinoma is a rare tumor; however, because of its aggressive local infiltration, ophthalmologists should consider this diagnosis and complete surgical excision. Long-term data are needed to establish outcomes from the different treatment options.
