Bilateral vitreous hemorrhage in a newborn with Stickler syndrome associated with a novel COL2A1 mutation


Gerth-Kahlert, C; Grisanti, S; Berger, E; Höhn, R; Witt, G; Jung, U (2011). Bilateral vitreous hemorrhage in a newborn with Stickler syndrome associated with a novel COL2A1 mutation. Journal of AAPOS, 15(3):311-313.

Abstract

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.
