Entropion, or inward rotation of the eyelid margin, is an eyelid malposition commonly seen by general ophthalmologists and oculoplastic surgeons. The severe corneal irritation secondary to contact with the lashes and keratinized epithelium of the eyelid skin brings patients in for evaluation promptly. There are four major types of entropion: congenital, acute spastic, involutional, and cicatricial. It is important to define the pathologic process in entropion to plan and achieve successful surgical repair.
