Congenital eversion of the upper eyelids is a rare clinical entity, the pathogenesis of which is still obscure. Incidence is higher in black babies, infants with Down’s syndrome and in collodion babies. Treatment modalities vary from conservative management to surgical correction. We report a case of bilateral congenital eversion of upper eyelids in a full term neonate born by caesarean section. Immediate conservative management of the condition resulted in complete recovery.
