Case Study
Nasopalpebral lipoma-coloboma syndrome is characterized by nasopalpebral lipoma and eyelid coloboma. We report a case of a 16-year-old Indian girl who reported to us with this rare syndrome. Computed tomography scan showed a signifi cantly hypodense lesion on the right side of nose which was confi rmed to be a lipoma on histopathological examination. This condition should be included in diff erential diagnosis of conditions with congenital eyelid coloboma.
