Abstract

We report on a 10 1/2-years-old patient with clinical manifestations of Peters'-Plus syndrome. The patient had Peters' anomalyi, slightly arched eyebrows, long eyelashes, a broad nasali tip; malformed and prominent ears, cleft lip and palate, brachydactylyi, fingertip pads, severe growth deficiency, and mild mental retardation. Peters' anomaly is a defect of the anterior chamber of the eye, including central corneal opacity, thinning of the posteriori aspect of the cornea and iridolenticulocorneal adhesions. Peters'-Plus syndrome is a disorder in which patients with Peters' anomaly are also found to have short stature, brachymedia, abnormal ears, cleft lip and palate, and mental retardation. Our patient showed Peters'-Plus syndrome associated with some clinical manifestations of the Kabuki make-up syndrome.
