Orbital HypotelorismAn Isolated Autosomal Dominant Trait

Arch Ophthalmol. 1984;102(7):995-997. doi:10.1001/archopht.1984.01040030797019

• Four patients from three consecutive generations of a family with ocular hypotelorism are described. Radiographs document a subnormal distance between the medial orbital walls. To our knowledge, this is the first report of heritable isolated orbital hypotelorism. The pedigree is consistent with an autosomal dominant disorder.
