Stickler syndrome is a group of hereditary conditions characterized by a distinctive facial appearance, eye abnormalities, hearing loss, and joint problems. These signs and symptoms vary widely among affected individuals. A characteristic feature of Stickler syndrome is a somewhat flattened facial appearance. This is caused by underdeveloped bones in the middle of the face, including the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose.
The most common were hyphaema – 5 cases (12.5%) and anterior chamber shallowing – 2 cases (5.0%), hypotony (without choroidal detachment) – 2 cases (5.0%) and conjunctival wound leaks – 1 case (2.5%). These also involved subconjunctivalhemorrhage – 3 cases (7.5%) and transient corneal epithelial defects in 2 eyes (5.0%).
