A Case of Peters' Anomaly

  • 1Department of Ophthalmology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.


Peters' anomaly is a congenital, central corneal stromal opacity usually associated with a defect in the posterior sttroma and Descemet's membrane and anterior synechiae which extend from the pupillary zone of the iris to the periphery of the corneal opacification. The authors experienced a case of Peters' anomaly which occurred in the right eye of 12-day-old male. Under the slit-lamp examination, the right cornea had a central white corneal opacity with adherence of the iris strands to the leukoma and an opaque lens. Intraocular pressure was within normal limits in both eyes.
