A 7-year-old boy was diagnosed and treated for familial exudative vitreoretinopathy. Genetic testing revealed a 16p13.11 microdeletion and unbalanced translocation causing 11q deletion syndrome. This is the first report describing retinal findings associated with this combination of genetic alterations. Patients with 11q deletion syndrome or 16p13 microdeletions should undergo ophthalmologic examination. [J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus. 2017;54:e71-e74.].
