A case of severe bilateral ciccatricial ectropion occurred secondary to keloid formation from massive, superimposed pyoderma related to chickenpox eruptions. The immune deficiency disease is an etiological factor. The surgical correction of the lid deformities consisted of infralash incision, lysis adhesions, horizontal shortening, and full-thickness skin grafting.
