A SECOND GROUP OF CASES OF ARACHNODACTYLY

A SECOND GROUP OF CASES OF ARACHNODACTYLY Abstract Two years ago, at a meeting of this society, I reported six cases of arachnodactyly in two families. Through the courtesy of the surgeons of the Brooklyn Eye and Ear Hospital and their assistants, nine more cases will be added. The new cases have not explained the origin of the condition, but hereditary influences are more certain. Perhaps the best way to present this matter will be to describe the new cases and summarize briefly the points that they emphasize. REPORT OF CASES Case 1.—David B., aged 15, from Dr. Place's clinic, had vision of counting fingers at 6 feet (1.8 meters), but by holding print close to an eye with a little study he could read ordinary print in a surprising manner.

Abstract

Abstract Two years ago, at a meeting of this society, I reported six cases of arachnodactyly in two families. Through the courtesy of the surgeons of the Brooklyn Eye and Ear Hospital and their assistants, nine more cases will be added. The new cases have not explained the origin of the condition, but hereditary influences are more certain. Perhaps the best way to present this matter will be to describe the new cases and summarize briefly the points that they emphasize. REPORT OF CASES Case 1.—David B., aged 15, from Dr. Place's clinic, had vision of counting fingers at 6 feet (1.8 meters), but by holding print close to an eye with a little study he could read ordinary print in a surprising manner. Both corneas were smaller than normal, but I did not measure them. The tension (according to the new Schiötz scale) was 18 mm. in one eye and References 1. Lloyd, Ralph I.: Arachnodactyly (Dystrophia Mesodermalis Congenita; Typus Marfanis; Marfan's Syndrome; Dolichostenomelia) , Arch. Ophth. 13:744 ( (May) ) 1935.Crossref 2.
