lenticonus

A condition in which one or both surfaces of the internal crystalline lens of the eye is conical rather than spherical. This causes distortion of vision.

lenticonus

A conical projection of either the anterior or posterior surface of the crystalline lens of the eye, occurring as a rare congenital anomaly. The anterior lenticonus is the most common and most often associated with Alport's syndrome. If the bulging is spherical, instead of conical, the condition is referred to as lentiglobus. It produces a decrease in visual acuity and irregular refraction that cannot be corrected by either spectacle or contact lenses.

Past medical history includes adulthood onset, autosomal recessive type AS, due to a missense mutation in the COL4A3 gene, with development of severe renal insufficiency, hypertension, anterior lenticonus and mild sensorineural deafness for 4 years.
1-3) Patients with Alport syndrome often, although not always, exhibit systemic manifestations, the most common of which are hearing impairments (1,4,5) and ocular defects, most typically anterior lenticonus.
