Sebaceous gland carcinoma commonly arises in the periocular area and is an uncommon condition. Its orbital origin is even rare with isolated reports in literature search. Its early diagnosis is frequently missed owing to the subtle presentation that mimics various benign conditions. Surgery with wide resection margin is considered the standard of care. Irradiation is frequently indicated and administered as an adjuvant regimen following surgical resection. The role of chemotherapy in this disease remains investigational and is usually employed in recurrent settings.
