Three siblings with Peters' anomaly: problems of management in Nigeria
AbstractThe cases of three children with Peters= anomaly are presented. The children are products of a consanguineous marriage. The clinical features and peculiar problems of managing these patients in a developing country are discussed. With the advent of keratoplasty, some cases, if operated early achieve good vision though the problem of concomitant glaucoma remains a drawback. In Nigeria, and indeed in most developing countries of sub-saharan Africa, corneal transplantation is still in the embryonic stage.
