Abstract
We experienced a case of corneal opacity with multiple skeletal anomalies in a newborn infant. Congenital anomalies which we observed were similar to that case reported by Mietens & Webernin 1966. Which consisted of mental retardation, growth failure, flexion contracture of the elbows with dislocation of the head of the radius, abnormally short ulnar and radius, clinodactyly, bilateral opacity of the corneas, strabismus, horizontal and rotational nystagmus, and a small, pointed nose with a depressed root. We reported this case with brief review of literature.
