Familial posterior lenticonus.

PMID:  7713239     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Posterior lenticonus tends to be unilateral and there is no evidence that this is a familial condition. We report three cases of bilateral posterior lenticonus in boys. The mothers of all three cases had posterior lenticular changes, less severe than their sons. We suggest that bilateral posterior lenticonus may be inherited in an X-linked fashion.
