A 60-year-old male, laborer by occupation, presented with an ulcerative lesion of medial canthus in the left eye along with infiltration and adhesion of lids to globe. He had decreased vision and restricted extraocular movements. Exenteration with skin grafting was done. Histopathologically it was diagnosed as periocular metatypical cell carcinoma with scleral infiltration. Any suspicious lesion should be diagnosed and treated early so as to prevent such extensive damage.
