Abstract

Leber's congenital amaurosis is a hereditary clinical disorder that may be associated with several different diseases. This study consists of a retrospective review of 43 cases. Twenty of our patients had fundus appearances that resembled retinitis pigmentosa. Five had normal-appearing fundi. The remainder had other, previously reported fundus abnormalities, with the exception of two patients who demonstrated a new fundus finding, a nummular pigmentary pattern. Other associated eye anomalies included cataracts, keratoconus, ptosis, and strabismus. The most frequent systemic associations were mental retardation, cystic renal disease, skeletal disorders, and hydrocephalus.
