Abstract

Isteoporosis-pseudoglioma syndrome (OPPG) is a rare heritable entity that features severe osteoporosis and many variable ophthalmic findings leading to congenital or juvenile blindness. These include microph-thalmos, cataracts, bilateral pseudogliomatous retinal detachments, and phthisis bulbi. OPPG is usually not suspected until fractures occur, frequently after seemingly minor trauma. We report the ophthalmic find-ings of an infant girl with OPPG.
