Late onset of total eversion of the upper eyelids

Ann Ophthalmol. 1982 May;14(5):477-8.


A case of total eversion of both upper eyelids of late onset is reported. There were no associated ocular or general anomalies. No apparent cause was found. The treatment was directed toward diminishing the swelling of the lids and preventing corneal involvement, secondary infections, and epidermalization of the conjunctiva. Within the first week, the eyelids returned to their normal position. In a three-month follow-up period, no complication or other anomalies were found.
