A RARE CASE OF CONGENITAL EYELID IMBRICATION SYNDROME AND FLOPPY EYELID SYNDROME
Congenital eyelid imbrication syndrome (CEIS) is an exceptionally rare, benign, short-lasting, self-limiting eyelid malposition disorder. The classical triad consists of bilateral upper eyelids overriding the lower eyelids, bilateral medial and lateral canthal tendon laxity, and tarsal conjunctival congestion. We report a case of congenital combined eyelid imbrication and floppy eyelid syndrome in a healthy neonate that was resolved within five days with conservative management. In adults, eyelid imbrication is usually associated with floppy eyelid syndrome which requires surgical correction.
