Homocystinuria caused by cystathionine B-synthetase deficiency is characterized biochemically by increased concentration of homocystine and methionine, decreased concentration of cystine in plasma and urine. The manifestation of this rare disorder include skeletal abnormalities, a high incidence of thromboembolism, ectopia lentis, and a high frequency of mental retardation. We experienced a case of homocystinuria in a 10-year-old female patient who had mental retarda- tion, ectopia lentis, corneal opacity, Marfanoid features. We reported a case of homocystinuria with a brief review of related literatures.
