Mobius syndrome is extremely rare congenital neurological disorder results from the underdevelopment of the sixth and seventh cranial nerves which causes facial paralysis and inability to move the eyes from side to side. A congenital malformation of the tarsus known as tarsal kink was the associated eyelid anomaly which caused upperlid entropion. A two year old girl presented with both eyelids entropion of left eye which was corrected by upper lid tarsotomy, marginal rotation and levator suturing with tarsal plate and lower lid retractors were strengthened by their advancement to the tarsal plate.
