Thin central corneal thickness (CCT) is a well-established risk factor for glaucoma development and progression.1 Lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital (LADD) syndrome is an autosomal dominant syndrome associated with multiple congenital anomalies.2,3 We describe a young patient with LADD syndrome who had extremely thin CCT and severe open-angle glaucoma.
