Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common malignancy in the face. Surgical removal and reconstruction is the first choice of treatment options for BCC, but it tends to be invasive and sometimes is accompanied by a drastic change in appearance. We report here a case of BCC in the eyelid of a patient who was successfully treated by gamma knife radiosurgery (GKRS). He was 88 years old at this time. The ulcer disappeared within 3 weeks after GKRS and was covered with normal epithelium. This is the first report to describe an eyelid BCC that was treated by GKRS 1).
