Prof E. Puscariu has classified 20 hereditofamilial and congenital ocular syndromes as follows:

  1. 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.

  2. Syndromes without osteopathies:

    1. Infectious syndromes: toxoplasmosis and rubeola.

    2. Ectodermatosis: Rothmund and Werner syndromes, xeroderma pigmentosa, and von Hippel-Lindau's angiomatosis.

    3. The craniofacial dysostoses.

Apart from this rather unusual classification, this monograph contains no original material nor any critical analyses.
