Bilateral preretinal and vitreous hemorrhages in infants are rare and can present a diagnostic challenge, with nonaccidental trauma included in the differential diagnosis. We present the case of a 4-week-old boy in which a Pierre Robin sequence and a positive family history led to the clinical diagnosis of Stickler syndrome, which was confirmed by the identification of a disease-causing novel deletion of 2 nucleotides in the COL2A1 gene. This early association with Stickler syndrome has not been described previously.
