Stickler syndrome with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment

Stickler syndrome with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment

Nippon Ganka Gakkai Zasshi 114(5): 454-458

Stickler syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by various disorders of the eyes and the connective tissues throughout the body. It can arise from a mutation in the collagen associated gene. We present a case of Stickler syndrome with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. A 10-years-old boy was referred to us with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment of the right eye. His family history included eye disease and a cleft palate. He had high myopia, vitreous liquefaction and lattice degeneration in the both eye. He also had a cleft palate and a broad nasal bridge. His condition was diagnosed as Stickler syndrome. We performed vitrectomy, scleral buckling and encircling, and silicone oil injection in the right eye. We also did a reattachment of the retina in the right eye. Pediatric retinal detachment may indicate the presence of Stickler syndrome and a complete examination of the eye as well as a full family history must be obtained in such cases.
