Basal cell carcinoma is the most common eyelid malignancy, accounting for approximately 90% of malignant eyelid tumours. Despite its prevalence in adults, it is extremely rare in children, and usually occurs in the setting of a known genetic defect or following radiotherapy treatment. We report three cases of de novo basal cell carcinoma in children. These children had no known genetic syndromes and had not undergone radiotherapy.
