Ocular and brain imaging findings in Peters' anomaly: A case report and literature review

Radiol Case Rep. 2020 Apr 30;15(7):863-866. doi: 10.1016/j.radcr.2020.04.011. eCollection 2020 Jul.


Peters' anomaly is a rare congenital eye condition characterized by anterior segment dysgenesis and commonly presents as unilateral or bilateral corneal opacity in the early neonatal period. Peters' anomaly is often associated with congenital brain and skull abnormalities, which are frequently overlooked. In this paper, we present a case of a 5-day-old female neonate with Peters' anomaly, and review the literature for similar reports that describe associated brain imaging findings. In our case, imaging studies show abnormalities involving the anterior segments of both globes with absent intracranial manifestations. Although Peters' anomaly is a condition of interest for ophthalmologists, radiological studies should be performed, and neuroradiologists should be aware of the imaging findings associated with this rare entity.

Keywords: Anterior eye segment; Magnetic resonance imaging; Peters’ anomaly.
