A 6-year-old girl presents for evaluation of amblyopia. The parents report that she was a term infant (40 week gestation) but “had a complicated delivery”.  Neurologically, she is intact and she has met all of her developmental milestones. Her vision is 20/20 right eye and 20/100 left eye and her IOP is 18 mmHg in both eyes.   The findings on slit lamp examination are shown above.

What is most correct about the patient’s findings and the cause of her amblyopia?   

a. The patient has an obvious cataract and should be scheduled for surgery immediately.
b. The patient likely has unilateral glaucoma and should be started on glaucoma medicines immediately.
c. These corneal findings could be related to her delivery.
d.  This patient has lattice dystrophy and her family members should be screened.

For answers to the above, click here on or after November 21, 2006.
