Dr Tripathi's comments are greatly appreciated. As our report suggests, maternal exposure to a teratogen is indeed a likely etiology for this novel association. Unfortunately, a history of maternal drug use could not be elicited in this case. Our patient lacked all other associated ocular and systemic abnormalities listed by Dr Tripathi except for hypotonia, which was attributed to her state of panhypopituitarism.
