We read the article by Xu et al1 entitled “A case of 18p deletion syndrome after blepharoplasty” with great interest. In their case report, they reported a child with 18p deletion syndrome who underwent blepharoplasty for ptosis associated with the syndrome.1 The authors should be congratulated for introducing a method of cosmetic improvement for patients with this condition.
