Ascher syndrome is characterized by blepharochalasis, double lip and non-toxic goiter but all the features may not be seen in every case. It can be confused with Melkersson–Rosenthal syndrome, hereditary angioedema, early-onset dermatochalasis and acquired cutis laxa. Mounier–Kuhn syndrome can also have similar features, in addition to congenital tracheo-bronchomegaly. The treatment is surgical correction of the deformities.
