Author information

Department of Ophthalmology, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada.


Cryptophthalmos refers to a group of uncommon congenital anomalies of eyelid formation that can occur alone or in combination with multiple congenital anomalies as part of the Fraser syndrome. We present a case of bilateral abortive cryptophthalmos in a child with Fraser syndrome and discuss the problems of surgical management. A brief discussion of isolated and syndromic cryptophthalmos, including normal eyelid development, the pathogenesis of cryptophthalmos, and the management options follows.
