[Ophthalmologic follow-up examination in galactosemia (author's transl)].Klin Padiatr. 1977 Nov; 189(6):451-4.KP
In 1966, Thalhammer foundet "The Austrian Newborn Screening Program." Since 1969, we have examined 18 infants with galactosemia at 6 month to 8 year intervals. Even dense lens opacities often disappear with the correct dietary adjustment; progression of the cataract indicates failure to adhere to the prescribed diet.
