This is a rare entity in adults with no history of congenital abnormality. Several other rare, benign lesions may be clinically similar and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of an eyelid lesion containing striated muscle. This case highlights a striated muscle hamartoma of the eyelid not previously described in an adult. ©2008The American Society of Opthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inc.
