Abstract

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is an inherited condition in which defects in type 1 collagen cause abnormalities in many tissues and organs, including bone, teeth, heart valves, and eyes. We describe a 6-month-old boy with OI who presented with anterior megalophthalmos of the right eye and infantile-onset glaucoma of the left eye. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of these types of congenital eye anomalies in an infant with OI.
