An 8-year-old boy showed multiple cardiovascular and urinogenital anomalies, neurological problems as well as endocrinological abnormalities even shortly after birth. The patient had ophthalmological peculiarities, such as eyelid cleft configuration, tapetoretinal dystrophy, retinal visual atrophyi, early childhood converging strabismusi with varying angle relationships, nystagmusi, light sensitivity and substantial visual deficits. Finally a Kabuki syndrome could be confirmed by human genetic investigations (8q22-23 triplication).
