PMID:  11206747     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
PURPOSE: An uncommon congenital anomaly of the eyebrows is described. METHODS: Case report and review of the literature. RESULTS: Two articles in the English literature were found describing patients similar to ours. CONCLUSIONS: Congenital upward tenting of the midportion of the eyebrows, resembling the eyebrow line of an owl, is uncommon. This anomaly is thought to be transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion and may be accompanied by myopia and strabismus, but has not been associated with systemic disease.
