    A rare case of bilateral blepharochalasis of the upper eyelids is presented in a 10-year-old boy with several systemic abnormalities--unilateral agenesis of the left kidney, multiple skeletal anomalies of the vertebral column, and congenital heart disease with a left to right shunt. Such widespread congenital defects in association with blepharochalasis have not been described before. Blepharochalasis may represent a part of a more generalised disorder.
