Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors present clinical and angio-graphic findings in a 12-year-old girl with achon-droplasia who presented with bilateral retinal peripheral nonperfusion and unilateral rhegmatog-enous retinal detachment, which has not been previously described in achondroplasia. This report contributes incremental knowledge regarding aberrant retinal vascular phenomena observed in pediatric disease states and implicates the possible role of mutations in the FGFR3 gene in peripheral vascular abnormalities.
