Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. Because it is likely that testing methodology and our understanding of genes, allelic variants, and diseases will improve in the future, consideration should be given to banking DNA of affected individuals.

She had mild myopia but showed no sign of retinal detachment or vitreoretinal degeneration, and she had undergone surgery to correct cleft palate at the age of 2 years. Variants listed in the table have been provided by the authors. Although inter- and intrafamilial variation was observed among 25 individuals from six families with the same molecular diagnosis [ Liberfarb et al ], some generalities can be made regarding genotype – phenotype correlation:.


Previously, families with posterior chorioretinal atrophy were thought to have Wagner syndrome. To define variations in the clinical manifestations of Stickler syndrome, Stickler et al.
