Prof E. Puscariu has classified 20 hereditofamilial and congenital ocular syndromes as follows:
Syndromes with osteopathies: These include the phakomatoses, Lawrence-Moon-Bardet-Biedl syndrome, various forms of retinitis pigmentosa, blue sclerotics, Marfan-William, and Weil-Marchesani syndromes.
Syndromes without osteopathies:
Infectious syndromes: toxoplasmosis and rubeola.
Ectodermatosis: Rothmund and Werner syndromes, xeroderma pigmentosa, and von Hippel-Lindau's angiomatosis.
The craniofacial dysostoses.
Apart from this rather unusual classification, this monograph contains no original material nor any critical analyses.
