Zusammenfassung

Dargestellt werden die ophthalmologischen und histopathologischen Befunde eines Kindes mit immunologisch und virologisch gesicherter Rötelnembryopathie. Histopathologisch bestand neben der nur geringgradigen chronischen Uveitis anterior eine ausgeprägte Irisatrophie und eine Rubeolenretinopathie beidseits, nur linksseitig zeigten sich typische kataraktöse Linsenveränderungen und ein Mikrophthalmus. Die Pathogenese der einseitig aufgetretenen Veränderungen wird diskutiert.

Congenital Rubella Syndrome with Unilateral Cataract, Unilateral Microphthalmus and Bilateral Retinopathy

Summary

Ophthalmological and histopathological findings in a child with congential rubella syndrome are reported. The diagnosis was ascertained by means of immunologic and virologic methods. Histopathologically we found in both eyes chronic low grade anterior uveitis, severe iris atrophy and rubella retinopathy. Only one eye had typical cataracteous changes as seen with the rubella syndrome and was microphthalmic. The pathogenesis of the unilateral changes is discussed.
