Chappaz, Ariane; Barthelmes, Daniel; Buser, Lorenz; Funk, Jens; Gerth-Kahlert, Christina (2016). Iris cyst in a child with Aicardi syndrome: a novel association. Journal of AAPOS, 20(5):451-452.

Abstract

Aicardi syndrome is a rare X-linked cerebro-retinal disorder characterized by agenesis or dysgenesis of the corpus callosum, seizures, and chorioretinal lacunae; microphthalmia or optic nerve coloboma may also be observed. We report the case of an infant born with severe ocular malformations, including an anterior chamber cyst in one eye, which was surgically removed.
