    Dubowitz syndrome is a relatively rare genetic and developmental disorder. An eight-year-old female presented with a complaint of drooping in her left eye since birth. She had undergone ptosis surgery two years back. There was a history of delayed speech and delayed dentition. She was of moderate built appropriate to her age. There was microcephaly, sparse hair, flat bridge of the nose with a prominent rounded tip, short stature, low-set ears, and micrognathia with subsequent protrusion of upper two incisors. Based on the clinical features a diagnosis of Dubowitz syndrome with left recurrent ptosis was made. She underwent frontalis sling surgery and had a satisfactory outcome.
