CONGENITAL COLOBOMA OF THE EYELID

CONGENITAL COLOBOMA OF THE EYELID Cases of congenital coloboma of the eyelid of slight degree, varying from a small notch to a V shaped defect in the lid, are rare. Cases with complete absence of a large portion of the lid are exceedingly rare, and the chance of seeing two such cases and a photograph of a third, within three months, is the occasion of this note.

Abstract

Cases of congenital coloboma of the eyelid of slight degree, varying from a small notch to a V shaped defect in the lid, are rare. Cases with complete absence of a large portion of the lid are exceedingly rare, and the chance of seeing two such cases and a photograph of a third, within three months, is the occasion of this note. Case 1. —A healthy boy, aged 8, showed no abnormalities of development except those to be described, which had been present since birth. Vision was: right eye, 20/30; left eye, 20/200. As shown in Figure 1, about half the left upper lid was entirely absent, there being no sign of a tarsal plate in the region, no cilia, nor signs of meibomian glands. On the lower, outer part of the cornea and sclera was a large, solid dermoid, which, when the eyes were closed, fitted into the gap
