Abstract
Ankyloblepharon Filiforme Adnatum (AFA) is an extremely rare congenital anamoly occuring due to failure of separation of eyelids during fetal development. Despite its dramatic presentation, the treatment is bedside release of the adhesions and thus restoring vision and cosmesis. The hesitation on the part of treating physician or pediatrician can lead the child to amblyopia, and we report this case to add to the exisiting literature for a better understanding of the disease.
