Mild optic nerve hypoplasia with retinal venous tortuosity in aarskog (facial-digital-genital) syndrome.Ophthalmic Genet. 2005 Sep; 26(3):139-41.OG
Aarskog syndrome (faciogenital dysplasia) is an X-linked recessive genetic growth disorder characterized by short stature, dysmorphic facies, shawl scrotum, and digital anomalies. The condition was first described in 1970 and the gene responsible is FGD1 (MIM#305400). There are several reported ophthalmic findings associated with Aarskog syndrome which are discussed. We describe a case of Aarskog syndrome with venous tortuosity, optic nerve hypoplasia, and a type-2 antithrombin deficiency.
