Abstract

A 21 year old male presented with bilateral lens dislocation. He showed skeletal abnormalities simulating Marfan syndrome, mental retardation and history of convulsion during childhood. He was diagnosed as homocystinuria by laboratory studies. After five years of follow-up, rhegmatogenous retinal detachment developed in the right eye, which was brought to cure by multiple surgeries. Retinal detachment in homocystinuria was difficult to detect and treat because of concomitant systemic and mental problems.
