Abstract

Congenital eyelid imbrication syndrome (CEIS) is a rare condition presenting at birth and is characterised by overriding of the upper lid on the lower lid. It is due to longer upper lid, than the lower lid. Overriding leads to spontaneous eversion of the upper lids. In our patient, examination revealed canthal tendon laxity and hyperaemia of the tarsal conjunctiva. All the rest of the structures in the eyeball and adnexa were normal. Spontaneous eversion occurred in two weeks as the upper lid grew with time. No treatment was required.
