Clear cell variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an extremely rare neoplasm. Here, we report a case of clear cell variant of SCC which presented as an eyelid nodule. A 56-year-old male presented with a painless, small, pedunculated nodule in the left upper eyelid. On microscopic evaluation, tumor cells were arranged in nests and lobules with few foci of necrosis. Tumor cells were polygonal in shape, having abundant clear and vacuolated cytoplasm with peripherally pushed hyperchromatic nuclei. Two main differential diagnoses considered were sebaceous carcinoma and clear cell variant of SCC. On immunohistochemistry, tumors cells were negative for androgen receptor. A final diagnosis of clear cell variant of SCC was made. In a malignant eyelid tumor with clear cell morphology, a differential diagnosis of clear cell variant of SCC should be kept in mind before making a diagnosis of sebaceous carcinoma because sebaceous carcinoma possesses a poorer prognosis.
