Özet

A newborn presented with congenital severe tarsal kink of the upper eyelids not caused by levator aponeurosis disinsertion. A bilateral anterior lamellar repositioning procedure was performed to correct the tarsal kink. Levator aponeurosis disinsertion was not observed as an intraoperative finding. The tarsal kink disappeared, and eyelid positions remained stable during a follow-up period of 1 year. Our case indicates that severe congenital tarsal kink may develop without levator aponeurosis disinsertion, and anterior lamellar repositioning technique is a simple and effective method of treatment.
