Abstract

The authors report here a rare case of blepharophimosis syndrome which was associated with esotropia and nystagmus. Blepharophimosis syndrome is a clinical entity characterized by blepharophimosis, ptosis, epicanthus inversus, and telecanthus. In our case, it was also associated with horizontal nystagmus and esotropia. Our patient also had a bilateral mature cataract. It can either be type 1 or type 2 depending on the associated systemic manifestations. The present study describes a case of BPES type 2 with associated nystagmus and esotropia with a bilateral mature cataract.
