Double lip in a patient with Ascher’s syndrome

Double lip in a patient with Ascher’s syndrome Ascher’s syndrome is a rare disease which was first described by Ascher [1], an ophthalmologist from Prague, in 1920. His careful examinations of mostly young patients brought to light three more or less consistently associated abnormalities: double upper lip, blepharochalasis and enlargement of the thyroid. Of the patients with congenital double upper lip reported in the literature [1–15], about 50% presented with Ascher’s syndrome. To date, just over 100 cases have been described. As with other syndromes, one or the other abnormality may predominate or be absent. A case of a patient with double lip and blepharochalasis is presented. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

Ascher’s syndrome is a rare disease which was first described by Ascher [1], an ophthalmologist from Prague, in 1920. His careful examinations of mostly young patients brought to light three more or less consistently associated abnormalities: double upper lip, blepharochalasis and enlargement of the thyroid. Of the patients with congenital double upper lip reported in the literature [1–15], about 50% presented with Ascher’s syndrome. To date, just over 100 cases have been described. As with other syndromes, one or the other abnormality may predominate or be absent. A case of a patient with double lip and blepharochalasis is presented.
