Periorbital congenital melanocytic nevus associated with ankyloblepharon.

Abstract

We report periorbital congenital melanocytic nevus associated with ankyloblepharon in a 2-month-old boy. This unusual presentation may be explained by the assumption that the development of the congenital melanocytic nevus (CMN) in utero was related to the failure of normal eyelid separation, which occurs around the 20th week of gestation.
