Abstract

CARRARO, Roberta Rodrigues Infante Vieira; PACHECO, Alexsandra da Silva; ZANARDI, Daniela  and  SOUZA FILHO, Jorge José de. Do you know this syndrome?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2006, vol.81, n.3, pp. 287-289. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962006000300012.

Ascher's Syndrome, a subtype of anetodermia, is a rare disease characterized by the association, in different degrees, of upper eyelid laxity, lip swelling and increase in thyroid size. Its etiology is unknown, but there is evidence for a defect in elastic fibers, which are either fragmented or decreased in number. A case is reported of a 16-year-old patient with a single complaint: recurrent episodes of bilateral eyelid edema.
