Abstract

Seckel syndrome is an extremely rare inherited disorder characterised by severe growth retardation in utero, which continues later in life, resulting in short stature. Seckel syndrome presents as microcephaly, mental retardation, and a beak-like nose. This report describes a patient with Seckel syndrome who had bilateral cataract and underwent uneventful small incision cataract surgery in both eyes. The association of cataract with Seckel syndrome has not been described in the literature to the best of the authors’ knowledge.
