Purpose: To report a case of severe bilateral microphthalmos treated with a unilateral orbital reconstruction procedure.
Case Report: This is the case report of a 4-year old patient with bilateral microphthalmos who showed upper face underdevelopment with left palpebral and orbital structures more affected. She underwent a unilateral left orbital reconstruction procedure to achieve proper volume for an 18mm bio ceramic implant and achieved optimal postoperative cosmetic results.
Conclusion: This case shows that orbital osteotomies are indicated to provide upper face symmetry and allow the fitting of an orbital implant big enough to stimulate orbital development not needing to be replaced over time and providing optimal postoperative cosmetic results.
