Rights and Permissions

The purpose of this article is to highlight that cryotherapy is an effective, noninvasive, and simple treatment modality for basal cell carcinoma of the eyelid, especially if the tumor size is small. Cryotherapy is not recommended for basal cell carcinomas of the morphea type; however, the treatment was successful in this patient of ours. We present here a case of morpheaform basal cell carcinoma of the lower eyelid which improved after cryosurgery and showed complete resolution at 5-year follow-up.
