Vitreous hemorrhage as the initial manifestation of X-linked retinoschisis in a 9-month-old infant

J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus. Jan-Feb 2006;43(1):56-8. doi: 10.3928/01913913-20060101-12.


A 9-month-old infant presented with progressive esotropia, bilateral vitreous hemorrhages, bullous retinoschises, and peripheral retinal detachments. X-linked retinoschisis was diagnosed on the basis of electroretinogram findings. We report a case of vitreous hemorrhage as the initial presentation of X-linked retinoschisis in one of the youngest patients discussed in the literature.
