CASE OF THE Year

Diagnosis: Stickler syndrome (rare genetic disorder) with collagen issues. This patient didn’t have the typical Marshall variant with saddle nose. Around 1 in 8000. From retinal perspective needs to be watched due to the very high risk of retinal detachment.

36 year old. Joint issues. Fundus examination.

On history she has a young child with suspected hearing issues. On examination the vitreous appeared optically hollow and the retina showed this peripheral retinal degeneration especially along the vessels. Stickler syndrome most likely. Observe every 6m due to retinal detachment risk. Plan to examine the son, for fundus features.
