Abstract

A one-year-old male Nigerian child with congenital bilateral eyelid eversion and microphthalmia seen at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Benin City is presented. He had phenotypic features of trisomy 21. This case is presented because of its rarity particularly as it is occurring in association with a trisomy. Other associated ophthalmologic features and problems encountered with management are also discussed.
