Nanophthalmos and situs inversus totalis Full Text
Indian Journal of Ophthalmology, 08/08/2012
Sahin A et al. – Nanophthalmos is characterized by short axial length, high hypermetropia, thick sclera and a normal–sized crystalline lens. Situs inversus totalis is the mirror image of the normal morphology of the thoracic and abdominal viscera. This is the first report of a nanophthalmic patient with situs inversus totalis. Therefore, authors would like to invite the attention of the colleagues to the case and underline the importance of the systemic examination of the nanophthalmic patients to detect systemic malformations and visceral transpositions.
