Abstract

PURPOSE: Nasal turbinate mucosal graft provides an appropriate sturdiness and smooth mucosal surface and has added benefit of mucus production. We report one case of correction of severe upper and lower cicatricial entropion with shared nasal turbinate mucosal graft procedure.
METHODS
A 40-year-old male patient who had past medical history of Stevens-Johnson syndrome in his early twenties had severe upper and lower cicatricial entropion and trichiasis irritating the cornea. We corrected the severe upper and lower entropion simultaneously with shared inferior nasal turbinate mucosal graft.
RESULTS
A successful correction of severe upper and lower cicatricial entropion and improvement of dry eye symptom by plentiful mucus secretion were achieved and there was no recurrence during the followup of 14 months.
CONCLUSIONS
We report a case of good anatomical, functional and cosmetic results achieved by shared nasal turbinate mucosal graft procedure in the correction of severe upper and lower cicatricial entropion which cannot be corrected successfully with other conventional methods.
