Unilateral Blepharochalasis

Arch Dermatol. 1979;115(4):479-481. doi:10.1001/archderm.1979.04010040057018

True blepharochalasis occurring in young adults and associated with recurrent bouts of eyelid swelling and eventual lid laxity is an uncommon entity. We report the case of an 18-year-old woman who had a nine-year history of unilateral blepharochalasis. A skin biopsy specimen that showed the absence of stainable elastic tissue confirmed the clinical impression, and appropriate surgical correction was carried out.
