Abstract

Purpose. To report the association of keratoconus and Turner's syndrome in three patients and to review the ophthalmic manifestations of Turner's syndrome. Methods. Three patients with keratoconus and Turner's syndrome were identified and reported in a retrospective review. Results. These three cases represent the first series of patients with keratoconus and Turner's syndrome. All three patients underwent penetrating keratoplasty with good visual rehabilitation. None of the patients had other ocular features associated with Turner's syndrome. Conclusion. Turner's syndrome is commonly associated with ocular problems. In this series we identify an association of keratoconus with Turner's syndrome. Clearly, a careful ocular examination in this condition with attention to ocular features of Turner's syndrome is important.
