Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 6-month-old infant with congenital icthyosis was brought to the authors with bilateral cicatricial ectropion of the upper and lower eyelid with resultant exposure keratopathy. Skin autograft was not possible due to generalized skin involvement, leading to unavailability of a donor site. A maternal skin allograft was performed for both eyelids of each eye. Prior human leukocyte antigen typing was not done, and postoperative immunosuppressive agents were not given. At 10 months' follow-up, the graft was well accepted, and the ectropion was corrected.
