Lenz micropthalmia syndrome with associated orbital cysts.


Journal Article

An 8-year-old boy presented for oculoplastic evaluation of bilateral microphthalmia. He had multiple other congenital anomalies, including microcephaly, wide-spaced teeth, sloping shoulders, protruding ears, syndactyly, a posterior urethral valve, cystic dysplasia of the kidneys, and a bicuspid aortic valve. Taken together, these findings supported the diagnosis of Lenz microphthalmia syndrome. CT of the orbits revealed bilateral microphthalmic globes with associated colobomatous cysts. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first reported case of Lenz microphthalmia syndrome with associated orbital cysts.
