A 45 year old female presented with a pigmented lesion in the right periocular region. The mass was present on the lateral 1/3 of the lower eyelid and involving the lateral 1/8 of the upper eyelid. Full thickness excision with wide tumor-free margins was done and the residual defect was repaired. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of nodulo-ulcerative basal cell carcinoma. In this report, we describe a novel technique for reconstruction of large lateral canthus defect by using three local flaps. With triple-flaps technique extensive defects involving the lateral canthus can be repaired without difficulty with a good functional and aesthetic outcome.
