Ankyloblepharon Filiforme Adnatum (AFA) is a benign rare congenital disorder of the eyelid. It is characterized by single or multiple thin filamentous bands of tissue connecting the eyelid margins. AFA may occur in isolation, however, can be associated with additional anomalies related to chromosomal changes. In certain cases, the rate of regression of this band of tissue can occur in infants younger than six months. Our patient who was 20 weeks old was presented with a thin fibrous band of tissue that was present on the left eyelid. He was born 4 weeks premature.
