Primary mucinous carcinoma is a rare tumor which behaves in a relatively benign or locally aggressive manner and usually arises on the head and neck region. In this study, we would like to present a patient who has primary mucinous carcinoma of the skin, review the literature on this tumor. 63 years old male patient applied to our clinic with a palpable and painless mass at lower eyelid. Physical examination showed that it had irregular borders and 2.5x2 cm diameter. The incisional biopsy revealed mucinous carcinoma. According to statistics the primary mucinous tumor of skin would be counted as a rare entity. Therefore, it is hard to understand and define this kind of tumors. The diagnosis and treat-ment modalities could be varied among clinics. Primary mucinous carcinoma is a rare tumor. Therefore we would like to present our patient that we operated and share our experience with literature. Keywords: EyelidMucinous carcinoma
