Cataract, hearing loss and hypercholesterolemia

P. Nucci, M. B. Mets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new syndrome of congenital cataract, hearing loss, hypercholesterolemia, spasticity of the lower extermities, and perhaps mental retardation, is described. Manifestation in two brothers with no other affected family members suggests an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. A discussion of the differential diagnosis of oculo-auditory syndromes is presented.
