The article presents a case report relating to ankyloblepharon filiforme adnatum. The section discussed two cases of ankyloblepharon filiforme adnatum, and novel aspects of treatment, associations and classifications. Ankyloblepharon filiforme adnatum is a rare but potentially ambylogenic congenital abnormality of the eyelids, in which single or multiple bands of tissue join the upper and lower eyelid.

    Bilateral anophtalmos is a rare defect and less frequent entity. Congenital abscence of any ocular structure or arrest development or only an hystological sample may be present. Eyelids may be present and often adhered but can be separated. Anophtalmos can be associated to Sox² chromosome or...

    Nasal glioma, also known as glial heterptopia or the occurrence of isolated non - teratomatous glial tissue is a rare and benign congenital defect. This condition is diagnosed usually at birth time and requires early treatment to prevent facial deformations. We report here a case of extranasal...

    In type I blepharophimosis/ptosis/epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES), eyelid abnormalities are associated with ovarian failure. Type II BPES shows only the eyelid defects, but both types map to chromosome 3q23. We have positionally cloned a novel, putative winged helix/forkhead transcription...
