Diagnostic Considerations

Please consider the differential diagnoses listed below when diagnosing blepharochalasis syndrome. In particular, blepharochalasis is often confused with dermatochalasis, which refers to the lax and redundant skin most commonly observed in the upper eyelids with aging; however, dermatochalasis is usually not associated with recurrent attacks of edema, “cigarette-paper” skin, and subcutaneous telangiectasia, as observed in blepharochalasis.
