Bilateral Matured Cataracts Complicating Atopic Dermatitis. Presented by Dr. Meyer L. Niedelman.
N. G., a white woman aged 28, presents persistent symmetrically distributed dry, scaly excoriated lesions over the face, neck, chest, back, thorax and cubital and popliteal areas and the thighs. Some of the areas are exudative. The dermatitis first appeared at the age of 5 years. It began in the cubital and popliteal areas and spread to the present sites. The patient states that she had good vision until one month after the birth of her baby, three months ago, when she noticed dimness of vision, cloudiness and inability to distinguish objects. This condition has progressed rapidly until at present she is able to distinguish only light and that faintly. The cataracts in both eyes are fully matured. Her mother had infantile eczema, and a first cousin, 20 years of age, has eczema.
