Seckel's syndrome with pseudopolycoria

Ophthalmic Paediatr Genet. 1985 Dec;6(3):135-9. doi: 10.3109/13816818509087632.


A case of Seckel's bird headed dwarfism is described in which ultrasonography was performed. Short axial lengths of the globes were measured as well as uniocular flattening of the corneal curvature. Iris holes with pseudopolycoria were also noted. To the author's knowledge, this is the first report on a case in which there is a combination of Seckel's syndrome with pseudopolycoria and in which ultrasonography was performed.
