Journal Article

An infant with bilateral Peters' Anomaly, with corneal opacification in the right eye and an opacification with an axial defect in the left also had an associated hydrocephalus and cardiac anomalies that proved fatal; histopathology of the right eye showed retinal neovascularization in addition to findings consistent with a diagnosis of Peters' Anomaly; in the left eye, pathologic findings were suggestive of a corneal coloboma associated with aphakia.
