Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE: Encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis is a congenital neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by lipomatous craniofacial hamartomas. The most common ocular manifestation is epibulbar choristoma, but many additional eye anomalies may be present. METHODS: To our knowledge, this is the first reported case with bilateral aniridia. We report a case of a boy affected by this syndrome and review the literature. CONCLUSION: Regarding this case, we suggest adding aniridia to the possible ocular anomalies in this syndrome.
