Craniostenosis Cataract

Common Name(s)

Craniostenosis Cataract

Craniostenosis Cataract is a rare disorder characterized by abnormal clouding of the eye lens and early fusion of the skull bones. Early fusion of the skull bones can lead to problems with brain development. Hence, individuals with this disorder often have eye problems and may develop intellectual disability. Depending on the extent of the cataract, individuals can have varying degrees of blindness. Individuals may have problems with reasoning and solving problems, as well as performing day-to-day tasks. The disorder is often diagnosed early in childhood, since the symptoms are very apparent. Signs like walking and talking late, slow mastering of basic tasks, and having difficulty remembering things may also suggest this disorder in children. Treatment is developed on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. Doctors may suggest the patient undergo surgery to repair the clouded lens to restore vision. Doctors seek help from various therapists and community services to provide support and care for families affected by intellectual disability.
