Niger J Clin Pract. 2019 Jul;22(7):1029-1031. doi: 10.4103/njcp.njcp_661_18.


Ascher syndrome is a disease that is characterized by upper eyelid edema, double lip, and swelling in the thyroid glands whose etiology is unknown, and it is usually seen in young people over the age of 20. Blepharochalasis and double lip are observed in these patients as a result of the recurring lip and upper eyelid edema. The disease is benign and seen in both sexes and all races in about the same amounts. Although this syndrome rarely leads to functional problems, it usually leads to psychological problems in the patients it affects due to the malformations on their faces. In this case presentation, we reported the surgical treatment of a 27-year-old patient diagnosed with Ascher syndrome and displayed double lip based on this syndrome.
