Abstract

Wagner syndrome is a rare hereditary vitreoretinopathy that has been reported in only about 300 people worldwide. It is caused by a mutation in the VCAN gene that encodes for the proteoglycan versican, which is a major component of the extracellular matrix of the vitreous gel; retinal detachment is uncommon in these cases. The authors report a case of a 23-year-old male who presented with bilateral combined tractional and rhegmatogenous retinal detachments.
