Neurofibroma is a peripheral nerve sheath tumor which is seen in neurofibromatosis type 1 and is characterized by various ophthalmic manifestations. Solitary neurofibroma of the eyelid is rare. We report a case of a 53-year-old female patient who presented with a painless swelling in the left upper lid of 4 years' duration. She had undergone surgery for the same lesion twice. The lesion was excised and histopathological examination revealed a solitary neurofibroma. She did not have any other features of generalized neurofibromatosis.
