An unusual case of ptosis

Abhilash K

Abstract


Blepharophimosis is a condition where the patient has bilateral ptosis with reduced lid size, vertically and horizontally. The nasal bridge is flat and there is hypoplastic orbital rim. Here I am presenting a case of a father & son with blepahrophimosis which could be a part of an uncommon condition called BPES (Blepharophimosis, Ptosis, Epicanthus Inversus, Telecanthus).
