  • MICROPHTHALMIA, MICROCORNEA, AND SCLEROCORNEA WITH SHORT STATURE AND HAIR AND DENTAL ABNORMALITIES

On the island of Rodrigues in the Indian Ocean, Wallis and Beighton (1992) identified a brother and sister with moderately severe mental retardation, blindness due to severe ocular malformations (microphthalmia, microcornea, and sclerocornea), short stature, dysmorphic facial features (narrow nasal bridge with distal flaring of the nose and prominent ears), fine and sparse hair, and malaligned teeth. Wallis and Beighton (1992) emphasized, possibly inappropriately, the hair and dental changes in entitling their report.
