• Three infants had congenital eyelid bands, ankyloblepharon filiforme adnatum (AFA), in association with cleft lip and palate. A review of the literature of all previously reported cases of AFA was performed and a new classification of the various clinical types of AFA is proposed. This new classification should aid in genetic counseling.
