  • Megalocornea, also known as anterior megalophthalmos, X-linked megalocornea, and macrocornea, is a rare bilateral nonprogressive congenital defect that is characterized by an increased corneal diameter greater than 12.5 to 13 mm at birth and a deep anterior chamber with normal intraocular pressures.[1][2] Thinning of the cornea has also been frequently associated.[3] The defect falls under the ca…
  • Cloudy Cornea with Arcus Juvenilis in a Case of Dense Deposit Disease. [Case Reports]

  • A 25-year-old male patient presented with complaints of blurred vision in both eyes since 2 years. The patient was a known case of nephrotic syndrome with dyslipidaemia for which he was on diuretics and lipid-lowering agents for 3 years. On examination, his visual acuity was 6/9 in both eyes with cloudy cornea and arcus juvenilis. Fundus examination was within normal limits. On systemic work-up, …
  • Cutaneous markers of coronary artery disease. [Journal Article]

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD) is rapidly increasing in prevalence across the world and particularly in south Asians at a relatively younger age. As atherosclerosis starts in early childhood, the process of risk evaluation must start quite early. The present review addresses the issue of cutaneous markers associated with atherosclerosis, and the strengths and weaknesses of the markers in identifyi…
  • Description of X-linked megalocornea with identification of the gene locus. [Journal Article]
    Arch Ophthalmol. 1991 Jun; 109(6):829-33.Mackey DA, Buttery RG, … Denton MJ
  • We studied the clinical appearance and inheritance in five families with X-linked megalocornea. Affected male subjects had corneal diameters between 13.0 and 16.5 mm. Arcus juvenilis, mosaic corneal dystrophy, and cataracts were found only in adult affected male subjects. No carrier female abnormality was identified. The gene locus for the X-linked form is in the region Xq12-q26. This is near the…

  • Severe bleeding from gastric varices occurred in an 18-year-old male known, since he was three years old, to have liver cirrhosis with beginning protal hypertension. The cause of the portal hypertension was chronic cholestasis due to hypoplasia of the interlobular bile ducts. There was also peripheral pulmonary stenosis with pulmonary hypertension (106 mmHg systolic), and a posterior embryotoxon …
