Familial nanophthalmos.

Abstract

Four members of one sibship had microphthalmos with fundi having an irregular "rippled* appearance with alternating light and dark red coloration. Fluorescein angiography revealed patchy choriocapillaris perfusion with unusually rapid diffusion into the retina. Genealogic and geographic data strongly suggest autosomal-recessive inheritance. Only one patient developed glaucoma. The unique combination of abnormalities in this family suggests that a new recessive mutation may be responsible.
