Coloboma of inferior eyelid
Coloboma of inferior eyelid is a rare developmental defect during embryogenesis characterized by a unilateral or bilateral, partial or full-thickness, variably sized defect of the inferior eyelid (ranging from a small notch to complete absence of the entire lid) which is usually triangular in shape (with base at eyelid margin) and located on the lateral third of the lid. It can occur isolated, associated with facial clefting or as part of a syndrome.
