Abstract

This report describes the case of a 9-year-old girl affected by fetal alcohol syndrome who presented at birth with blepharophimosis and a cleft palate, which was submitted to surgery. She was referred to our hospital for a visual acuity reduction, where a diagnosis of keratoconus was made. This case highlights the rarity of the association between fetal alcohol syndrome and cleft palate and the previously unreported association involving fetal alcohol syndrome-keratoconus and cleft palate-keratoconus.
