Abstract

PURPOSE: To report a case of Kabuki make-up syndrome (KMS) or Niikawa-Kuroki syndrome with Coats-type retinal telangiectasia, which has not been previously reported. METHODS: Observational case report. CONCLUSIONS: There have been only two reports of retinal pigmentation abnormalities and a single case of bilaterali macular deposits in KMS, but this is the first report of a Coats type retinal telangiectasia. This case highlights the importance of thorough posteriori segment examination in cases of KMS.
