CASE REPORT: A newborn evaluated at 20 days old due to occasional nystagmus. Her mother had presented with oculodentodigital dysplasia (ODDD) and glaucoma. The physical examination revealed opaque micro-corneas, and horizontal nystagmus. The tonometry showed 35 mm Hg in OD and 40 mm Hg in OS and the fundus examination was normal. She had a narrow nasal bridge with narrow nostrils, and fourth and fifth finger syndactylyl in both hands. A bilateral trabeculectomy was performed with a good response.
DISCUSSION: ODDD is a rare autosomal dominant disease with heterogeneous phenotype manifestations. The most frequent cause of loss of visual acuity is the glaucoma, requiring long-term follow up with periodical control of the intraocular pressure (IOP).
