Resumo PURPOSE: To describe the previously unreported managed ment of the eyelid anomalies associated with blepharo-cheilo-dontic syndrome. Blepharo-cheflo-dontic syndrome is a syndrome of congenital cleft lip/palate, oligodontia, euryblepharon, eyelid ectropion, and lagophthalmos.METHODS: Case report. A 3-month-old male presented with bilateral upper and lower eyelid ectropion with eyelid retraction, marked euryblepharon, severe lagophthalmos, and a right side cleft lip/palate. Lateral tarsal strips, lower eyelid retractor disinsertion, myocutaneous advancement of the cheek and eyelids, and lateral tarsorrhaphy were performed.RESULTS: Correction of the ectropion, eyelid retraction, euryblepharon, and marked improvement in his lagophthalmos were achieved postoperatively. No recurrence of the ectropion or euryblepharon has been noted after 6 months of follow-up.CONCLUSION: Appropriate reconstructive surgery of the eyelids reduces the morbidity associated with the eyelid anomalies and provides an excellent cosmetic result for patients with blepharo-cheilo-dontic syndrome.
