1/5. retinal degeneration associated with ectopia lentis.

    Two brothers had retinal degeneration, lens subluxation, and myopia since early life. There was no evidence of marfan syndrome, homocystinuria, or other systemic disease. They had nystagmus, myopia, inferior dislocation of the lens, and posterior subcapsular opacities in both eyes. Fundus examination showed attenuated retinal vessels, macular atrophy with occasional pigment accumulation as clumps, and perivascular sleeves. electroretinography revealed decreased photopic and scotopic responses. The visual fields were constricted. We believe this to be the first report of retinal degeneration with bilateral lens subluxation in a family. It appears to be inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion.

2/5. Management of bilateral ectopia lentis et pupillae syndrome.

    A 52-year-old patient presented with signs clinically consistent with ectopia lentis et pupillae syndrome. The patient was treated successfully with vitrectomy, dislocated lens removal using perfluorocarbon liquid and phacofragmentation in the vitreous cavity, pupil reconstruction, and scleral-fixated intraocular lens implantation in both eyes. Despite the fact that the surgery was successful in technical terms, the final visual outcome was not as good as expected. This was caused by the optic nerve atrophy resulting from long-lasting glaucoma. Nevertheless, the described surgical techniques may be considered an effective method of treatment in cases of ectopia lentis et pupillae syndrome.

3/5. Congenital ectopia lentis and secondary buphthalmos likely occurring as an autosomal recessive trait.

    A family from turkey with congenital ectopia lentis, likely occurring as an autosomal recessive trait, is presented. No systemic disorders such as homocysteinuria, Marfan's or Weill-Marchesani's syndromes were found in any of the patients. However, all patients except one were less than 2 years old when first examined so that lens luxation must have happened very early in life. Besides almost total lack of zonular threads the patients presented anomalies of ocular dimensions with increased corneal diameters and axial lengths, and in several cases glaucomatous distension of the optic discs could also be found. A possible explanation for these buphthalmic changes and their relation to lens luxation taking place very early in life is proposed. The importance of early diagnosis and treatment is discussed.

4/5. ectopia lentis et pupillae.

    A rare case of congenital bilateral ectopia lentis et pupillae (ELEP) is reported in a 32 year old female presenting with complaints of diminution of vision in both eyes. Associations of optic nerve hypoplasia and myelinated nerve fibers are being reported for the first time in such a case. The aetiopathogenesis of ELEP is controversial. Combined neuroectodermal and mesodermal origin is being postulated for this syndrome on the basis of aforesaid abnormalities and presence of pupillary dilator muscle hypoplasia, "annular endotheliopathy", and persistent pupillary membrane in both eyes.

5/5. A family with a syndrome of ectopia lentis, spontaneous filtering blebs, and craniofacial dysmorphism.

    Six members of a family presented with a syndrome of mild facial dysmorphism, subluxation of the crystalline lenses, variable degrees of angle closure by iridocorneal adhesions, and patchy areas of iris atrophy. Three nonoperated eyes of two patients had spontaneous filtering blebs that presented as avascular cystic elevations of the superior conjunctiva. Systemic workup of all patients was negative for evidence of diseases known to be associated with dislocated lenses. The pedigree is most compatible with autosomal recessive inheritance with pseudodominance.
