We treated a 56-year-old man who had acanthosis nigricans associated with gastric adenocarcinoma and involving the axillae, hands, feet, anus, soft palate, and eyes. The patient developed epiphora from occlusion of the canaliculi with papillomatous lesions. Recognition of the ocular signs of this paraneoplastic syndrome may indicate to the ophthalmologist that the patient should have a thorough oncologic examination.
