Abstract

This report is of a twelve year old Nigerian girl who presented to the Eye clinic of Federal Medical Centre, Owo, and Ondo State, Nigeria in March, 2010 on account of poor vision of five years duration. Examination of the patient revealed features which were in keeping with Marfan’s syndrome and bilateral ectopia lentis. The patient was refracted and recommended glasses which improved her vision were prescribed. The patient was also referred to the cardiologist for further evaluation and management. Multi disciplinary approach should be adopted in the management of Marfan’s syndrome so as to prevent complications most especially life threatening ones.
