Abstract

Ectropion, or turning out of the eyelid margin, is a common eyelid malposition. Ectropion of the lower eyelid may result from several entirely different pathologic processes. The major types of ectropion are involutional, cicatricial, paralytic, and mechanical. These are all managed differently and are discussed as separate entities.
