Cutaneous amyloidosis presenting as nodular masses on eyelid
The present case has been published in the journal Ophthalmology. A 52-year-old Asian man presented with bilateral, painless, nodular masses on the area of eyelids and cheeks for almost 10 years. His family history was unremarkable.

Ophthalmological examination revealed that the patient was unable to adequately open his eyes, but visual acuity and eye movement remained normal. Histological examination of skin lesions showed aggregations of amorphous eosinophilic material in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, stained positively with Congo red.

There was no evidence of systemic symptoms. The final diagnosis was primary nodular cutaneous amyloidosis. There was no obvious improvement with several suggested treatments in the literature.
