Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An 11-year-old girl with Joubert syndrome was evaluated for a dim red reflex in her left eye. Fundus examination revealed retinal telangiectasias bilaterally compatible with Coats-like pigmentary retinopathy, a phenomenon not previously reported in Joubert syndrome. Coats-like exudative retinopathy may result in permanent visual loss if left untreated. The exudative retinopathy was controlled after multiple sessions of indirect laser photocoagulation and cryotherapy, with a good visual outcome.
