What are epicanthal folds?

Also known as: epicanthal folds

Epicanthal folds are the folds of skin that run from the upper eyelid to the inner corner of the eye. In some people, they cover this inner corner. This is completely normal in many people, including those of Asian descent and infants. But in some cases, they may be a sign of an underlying medical condition.
