Four members of one sibship had microphthalmos with fundi having an irregular "rippled" appearance with alternating light and dark red coloration. Fluorescein angiography revealed patchy choriocapillaris perfusion with unusually rapid diffusion into the retina. Genealogic and geographic data strongly suggest autosomal-recessive inheritance. Only one patient developed glaucoma. The unique combination of abnormalities in this family suggests that a new recessive mutation may be responsible.
