Abstract: Trichothiodystrophy refers to a group of autosomal recessive disorders that have in common brittle sulphur-deficient hair (7). The abnormalities are usually obvious at birth and the clinical expression is variable. Ocular abnormalities are common with bilateral cataract being the most frequent one. We report on a four year old boy with trichothiodystrophy (complementation group TTD-A) who presented to us with strabismus, high myopia and bilateral cataract.
