Primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin is a rare adnexal tumor of sweat gland origin. A case report is presented of a 70-year-old male, who presented with a slow growing mass near the lateral canthus of his left eye. The case was clinically diagnosed as a fibroma. An excisional biopsy of the lesion revealed mucinous carcinoma of the skin. Investigations excluded the possibility of metastatic mucinous carcinoma. Thus, the lesion in the lateral canthus region was diagnosed as Primary Mucinous Carcinoma of the skin, a rare site of occurrence.
