Résumé : We present six patients with typical Hallermann-Streiff syndrome. All have microphthalmia and were operated for congenital cataract. Three of the patients developed a severe glaucoma and one patient presented repeated uveal effusions. Five of our patients have the same pattern of corneal stromal opacities. The opacities are ill defined and bilateral; the stroma between the opacities is clear. The opacities are observed in two children around the age of 5. Follow up of 10 years did not reveal a manifest increase of the lesions. The authors believe that corneal stromal opacities are a feature of the Hallermann-Streiff syndrome and they would urge ophthalmologists to look for this. Copyright © Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.
