Purpose of this report is describe a rare case of blepharochalasis that progressed from unilateral to bilateral involvement at five years after disease onset.
Case Report: A previously healthy five-year-old white boy presented to our hospital for a screening visual examination. He was found to have a 2-mm right eyelid ptosis with crepe-like skin and subcutaneous telangiectatic vessels. His mother noted that since the age of three, the child has been having two to seven day-long episodes of right upper eyelid swelling and edema with tenderness. The episodes eventually progressed to involving the left eyelid as well. Oral steroid taper was found to effectively resolve these exacerbations, and a diagnosis of blepharochalasis was made.
