vitreous opacities in newborn   Posted By Dr Paromita Sanatani    Date : 28-Apr-01   12:21 PM     Reply

A six month old infant was brought to us with a history of squint in the left eye since birth. On examination we found a constant left divergent squint with full ocular movements. The child had low vision in that eye (he objected strongly to covering the other eye). His anterior segment was normal. Fundus examination revealed vitreous opacities localised in the posterior vitreous over the disc. The disc and macula could not be visualised but the peripheral retina was normal. (The other eye was normal) The problem is 1. what is the d/d (I feel a mild form of posterior PHPP) any other ideas? 2. Do we intervene surgically - and when. (If we wait too long the amblyopia will be irreversable) 3. Any investigations suggested? (Which are practically possible in Calcutta)
