Blepharophimosis–ptosis–epicanthus inversus syndrome [BPES (OMIM#110100)] is a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by the following four major features: blepharophimosis, ptosis, epicanthus inversus, and telecanthus (Oley and Baraitser, 1988).
Two types of BPES have been recognized to date.
Type 1 is characterized by these eyelid malformations together with premature ovarian failure (POF).
Type 2 is characterized by the eyelid malformations without additional features (Zlotogora et al., 1983). [...]
