It is the purpose here to report a case of socalled male Turner's syndrome that illustrates the typical phenotype of this disorder as well as severe intraocular complications resulting from a high degree of axial myopia. No cases of male Turner's syndrome have previously been reported in the ophthalmic literature. It is thought, therefore, that the following report will be of interest as a new illustration of a generalized hereditary disorder with ocular manifestations.
