Abstract

Facial clefts are rare facial anomalies. Among them, oro-ocular cleft remains a challenging malformation due to ectropion of the inferior palpebra which can constitute an emergency when the patient's globe is exposed leading to exposure keratitis and blindness. Here we report surgical procedures to correct lower eyelid ectropion using tarsoconjunctival-skin flap performed on 2 cases. In conclusion, tarsoconjunctival-skin flap can be provided to effectively correct lower eyelid ectropion and is a better option when nose correction is not involved simultaneously.
