Some of the plaques were giant and mostly coalescent in nature. We excised surgically the giant plaques which were approximately 1.5-2 cm in diameter symmetrically from upper and lower eylids and the remaining plaques were left to be treated with cauterization. Histopathological examination revealed syringoma. Both of the eyelids were observed to have a cosmetically adequate appearence after the surgical intervention.
