Blepharochalasis is a rare disorder characterized by recurrent non-painful eyelid edema, which leads to atrophy and stretching of the supporting connective tissue around the eye. As a consequence, prolapse of the lacrimal gland can occur which results in fullness in the temporal third of the upper eyelids and may cause visual field restriction or cosmetic blemish for patients. Thus, correct diagnosis is important to plan appropriate surgery and obtain a successful postoperative result. Read More

Ascher syndrome is defined by the association between double lip, blepharochalasis, and nontoxic goiter. Because it is a rare disease, it is most often misdiagnosed, despite its implications for quality of life. We report a variation of an incomplete type of Ascher syndrome affecting the upper lip, upper eyelids, and lateral canthi of a young male patient. Read More

Background: Gelsolin amyloidosis, or Meretoja disease, is a dominantly inherited syndrome in which the collection of amyloid leads to early aging, bilateral progressive facial paralysis, and corneal lattice dystrophy. Characteristically, the major symptoms appear in the fifth decade of life, with brow ptosis and blepharochalasis, drooping of the facial tissues, and oral disturbances. Indications and methods, as well as the results of plastic surgical treatment, seem varied. Read More

A double-lip is an infrequent anomaly which may occur either isolated or as a component of Ascher's syndrome. Apart from a deformity that may interfere with speech and mastication, surgery may be indicated for cosmetic reasons. We present a case of a male patient with an acquired double lip and blepharochalasis. Read More

Blepharochalasis is a rare eyelid disorder that often presents in childhood or early adolescence. It is characterized by exacerbations and remissions of painless edema of the upper and occasionally lower eyelids. Although the average duration of attack is only two days, multiple attacks eventually lead to atrophic, wrinkled, and discolored periorbital skin. Read More

Two cases of double lip malformation, an uncommon oral anomaly, are presented, and the factors involved in the development, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of these uncommon lesions are reviewed. Double lip is usually associated with Ascher's syndrome, which is a rare disease with three more or less consistently associated abnormalities: double upper lip, blepharochalasis and enlargement of the thyroid. Two cases of double lip are reported; one of which was related with Ascher's syndrome, while the other had a traumatic origin. Read More

Pathological ptosis of the eyelids can be manifest already at birth but may develop also in advanced age. In children the congenital form predominates with or without affection of the elevators of the eyes (Congenital fibrous syndrome or Misdirection syndrome). A special form is blepharophimosis, juvenile blepharochalasis and Marcus-Gunn's syndrome. Read More

A 32-year-old white woman presented with persistent swelling of the right upper eyelid for diagnosis and therapy. History and physical examination revealed a faint nevus flammeus on the right side of her face and neck and bilateral blepharochalasis, both of which can produce unilateral periorbital swelling. A biopsy taken for histology was diagnostic in this case, since it showed lymphoedema secondary to lymphangiectasias associated with the patient's port-wine stain. Read More

The blepharochalasis syndrome is an uncommon disorder seen in young people that is characterized by recurrent episodes of eyelid edema. After repeated episodes various eyelid supportive structures are stretched, giving rise to the characteristic features of thin excess lid skin, blepharoptosis, pseudoepicanthal folds, and disinserted lateral canthal tendons. Surgical repositioning and reconstruction are often required. Read More

Ascher's syndrome is composed of the triad blepharochalasis, double lip and goitre. In many of the cases reported in the literature this typical constellation of symptoms is not complete; particularly the struma is not mandatorily involved.

Lattice corneal dystrophy associated with familial systemic amyloidosis (Meretoja syndrome) has rarely been described other than in patients of Finnish origin. The authors report two North American patients with this disease who manifest blepharochalasis, lattice corneal dystrophy, open-angle glaucoma, and cranial neuropathy. In one patient, a corneal intraepithelial and subepithelial pseudodendrite was managed by superficial keratectomy, and this same patient benefited from surgical brow suspension for facial muscular weakness.

Blepharochalasis is an uncommon disorder distinguished by recurrent episodes of eyelid oedema in young patients. A hypertrophic form, manifested as fat herniation, and an atrophic form, manifested as fat atrophy, have been described. Ptosis with excellent levator function, laxity of the lateral canthal structures with rounding of the lateral canthal angle, nasal fat pad atrophy, and redundant eyelid skin develop after many episodes of eyelid swelling.

Patients with chronic forms of blepharochalasis often develop eyelid deformities characterized by blepharoptosis and prolapse of the orbital fat and lacrimal gland. Some individuals have an acquired form of blepharophimosis, secondary to the dehiscence of the canthal tendons. In this late stage of the condition, the tendons still adhere to the periosteum of the orbital rims and loss of fixation occurs at the distal attachment between the tendons and the eyelid tissues.
