Abstract

Nasopalpebral lipoma-coloboma syndrome is an extremely uncommon autosomal dominant condition characterized by congenital upper eyelid and nasopalpebral lipomas, colobomata of upper and lower eyelids, telecanthus, and maxillary hypoplasia. A few familial and sporadic cases of this malformation syndrome have been previously reported. Here, the clinical, radiological, and histopathological features of a sporadic Mexican patient with the nasopalpebral lipoma-coloboma syndrome are described. To our knowledge, this is the first time that craniofacial 3D computed tomography imaging was used for a detailed assessment of the facial lipoma. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
