Lipoid proteinosis is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis with abnormal lipid protein complexes deposition in different parts of the body, especially in the skin and mucus membranes of the upper aerodigestive tract. Though ocular involvement in lipoid proteinosis is rare, ophthalmologists may encounter diverse ocular complications accompanying this syndrome in clinical practice. We describe a case of lipoid proteinosis involving bilateral eyelids with pathognomonic moniliform blepharosis in a 33-year-old gentleman who presented with the complaints of itching of eye lids on and off since 10 years.
