  • Rothmund Thomson Syndrome

    Recently we encountered a 25-year-old white woman who had developed this syndrome but without juvenile cataracts, hypogonadism, or mental retardation.[] Two clinical subforms of RTS have been defined: RTSI characterised by poikiloderma, ectodermal dysplasia and juvenile cataracts, and RTSII characterised by poikiloderma, congenital[] Rothmund-Thomson syndrome is a rare genodermatosis that features a progressive, early-onset poikiloderma, a high incidence of juvenile cataracts, stunted growth, and a wide[]

  • Cerebrotendinous Xanthomatosis

    We report the case of a child presenting with juvenile bilateral cataracts leading to the diagnosis of CTX.[] Pediatricians should be aware of this diagnostic possibility of cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis in children presenting with chronic diarrhea and juvenile cataracts.[] When affected children demonstrate lens opacities, ophthalmologists have the unique potential to facilitate earlier diagnosis and treatment by recognizing the juvenile cataract[]

  • Fabry Disease

    Fabry disease, also known as Anderson-Fabry disease, angiokeratoma corporis diffusum and alpha-galactosidase A deficiency, is a rare genetic lysosomal storage disorder.

    The patient had a high-pitched voice, hoarseness, a characteristic bird-like facial appearance with a beak-shaped nose, canities and juvenile cataracts.[] Showing graying and loss of hair, skin atrophy, and juvenile cataract, he was diagnosed with Werner syndrome type 4 by molecular analysis.[] She displayed typical features of Werner syndrome including juvenile cataract, short stature and low weight, a bird-like face, a hoarse voice, and dry, atrophic, pigmented[]

  • Myotonic Dystrophy

    Myotonic dystrophy is a kind of multisystem disease, which is inherited in nature. It is a chronic disease condition that gradually progresses, causing muscle wasting, myotonia, heart defects and development of cataracts. Myotonic dystrophy significantly affects multiple organs and systems involving the skeletal[…][]

  • Laurence Moon Syndrome

    Synonyms: adipogenital-retinitis pigmentosa syndrome, LM syndrome This is a rare autosomal recessive condition. Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome and Laurence-Moon-Biedl-Bardet syndrome are no longer considered valid terms, because the patients of Laurence and Moon had paraplegia, but no polydactyly or obesity, which[…][]
