143 Possible Causes for Lower Lid Ectropion

  • Ectropion

    We present a case of chronic right lower lid ectropion in a 66-year-old male.[] ‘This results in tears pooling in the cul-de-sac produced by the lower lid ectropion and resultant epiphora.’[] ‘In my view, the possibility of eyelid problems such as retraction and ectropion and the possibility of revisionary surgery are material risks about which a patient should[]

  • Miller Dieker Syndrome

    Miller-Dieker syndrome represents a microdeletion syndrome spanning the LIS1 locus at 17p13.3, the deletion of which leads to lissencephaly. A fluorescence in situ hybridization study using an LIS1 probe is considered the standard laboratory diagnostic method for Miller-Dieker syndrome. This report documents a[…][]

  • Entropion

    METHODS: A retrospective review of the number of Asian lower lid involutional ectropion and entropion repairs was performed in three different clinical practice settings.[] , easy upper lid eversion, lower lid ectropion, ptosis Treatment - wedge excision, canthal tendon repair 18.[] Involutional (age-related) and paralytic ectropion are repaired with a lower lid tightening procedure. Think of it as a “nip and tuck” for the lower eyelid.[]

  • Lamellar Ichthyosis

    One had mild lower lid ectropion but without corneal exposure.[] A 35-year-old woman presented with bilateral lower lid ectropion associated with lamellar ichthyosis.[] Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery: March 1990 Article: PDF Only Abstract A 35-year-old woman presented with bilateral lower lid ectropion associated with lamellar[]

  • Blepharophimosis-Epicanthus Inversus-Ptosis Syndrome

  • Secondary Entropion

    As the function of the lower eyelid is to protect the eye and to lead the tears into the inner corner of the eye, where they are drained away, a lower lid ectropion can result[] Often the edge (margin) of the lower lid is red. Ectropion can affect one or both lower eyelids.[] If the lower lid margin does not extend 2mm above the lower limbus, then cicatricial ectropion is considered. – In cicatricial ectropion, eyelid malposition often becomes[]

  • Congenital Upper Palpebral Retraction

  • Meibomian Cyst

    ECTROPION AND ENTROPION Ectropion is the outward turning, or drooping of the lower eye lid.[]

  • Malunited Fracture

    Lower lid ectropion may follow a subciliary approach to the maxilla.[] Lower lid transconjunctival incisions decrease the likelihood of ectropion and should be considered in high-risk patients.[] If severe ectropion occurs, breaking up the scar with Z-plasty or skin grafting from the opposite lid skin may be necessary.[]

  • Strabismus

    Ectropion arises when the lower lid curls away from the globe in such a way that, if significant, the tears overflow the lid.[] Malposition of the lids Malposition of the lid is common in elderly people.[]
