Orbit , Volume 31 - Issue 3 p. 174- 176
Purpose: To describe a bilateral involutional lower eyelid ectropion in a patient with cutis laxa, a paraneoplastic process in multiple myeloma. Design: Case report. Results: A 60-year-old male presented with a marked involutional left lower eyelid ectropion. Systemic history included cutis laxa, a paraneoplastic feature of multiple myeloma. After surgical treatment, the ectropion recurred; furthermore, a right lower eyelid ectropion developed. In addition, a distinct dermatochalasis of both upper eyelids was present. Conclusions: This case is the first description of a marked bilateral involutional ectropion in cutis laxa acquisita.
