Syringomas pose a cosmetic problem in some patients. In the past, surgical removal of large portions of the lower lid or electrodesiccation have been the usual methods of removal. This report describes a technique for individual excision of these tumors that is easily performed as an office procedure using a pair of fine ophthalmologic spring-action scissors and gives excellent cosmetic results.
