Abstract :

The aims of this case report is to report the result of upper eyelid coloboma repair with three steps surgery. A 5-month-old babywith upper eyelid defect in the left eye since she was born. There were tearing and discharge in the left eye. Examination on the lefteye revealed coloboma at 1/3 medial upper eyelid, symblepharon and pseudopterygium. In this case we performed three steps surgery.First step was releasing tissue as close as possible, second step was performing fullthickness graft from upper eyelid of the fellow eyeand third step was Z-plasty performing at the superior medial canthal. Follow up was done for 3 months after surgery with a goodresult. In a small baby with 1/3 upper eyelid defect although graft was already done to repair the coloboma, Z-plasty technique stillneeded to elongate the tissue and close the defect.
