Refraction and axial eye dimensions, evaluated by ultrasound measurements, were investigated in 101 pre-term infants and 25 full-term controls. Gestational ages in the pre-term group ranged from 25 to 34 weeks, birth weights from 728 to 2480 g. All were seen in the eye clinic due to risk of developing retinopathy of prematurity. Age at examination was 36-54(More)
A cross-sectional analysis was performed regarding refractive value (spherical equivalent) and keratometry in a sample comprising 454 subjects aged 5-80 years. The refractive range was + 5.5 to -6.75D. According to the requirements of a parallel study of eye position and age, eyes with excessive ametropia had been excluded, but otherwise the sample was(More)
Three affected children from an inbred family had microcornea, microcephaly, congenital cataract, severe mental retardation, retinal dystrophy, optic nerve atrophy, hypothalamic hypogenitalism, and agenesis of the corpus callosum. The disorder is presumably autosomal recessive; no identical syndrome has been described, but we consider syndromes with similar(More)
AIMS To describe the outcome of four years' nationwide neonatal screening for congenital toxoplasmosis in liveborn newborns. METHODS Congenital toxoplasmosis was diagnosed if specific Toxoplasma gondii IgM antibodies were detected in eluate from the PKU Guthrie filter paper card from a child. Infants diagnosed with congenital toxoplasmosis were examined(More)
PURPOSE To discuss (i) optic disc appearance and (ii) the retinal course of the temporal vessel arcade in a longitudinal series of high myopia patients followed between the ages of 16 and 54. METHODS Thirty-nine individuals from a 1948 Copenhagen birth cohort (n=9243) who had myopia of -6 to -15 D when aged 14 years were invited for current follow-up(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the distribution of congenital/infantile cataract in the entire population of Denmark according to etiological and clinical classifications. DESIGN Population-based cohort study with retrospective chart review. PARTICIPANTS All children (0 to 17 years old) who were born between 1959 and 2001 and registered with congenital/infantile(More)
Eighty-eight children of pre-term delivery 1982-84 (mean birthweight 1467 g, mean gestational age 31 weeks) with regular early control for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) had ophthalmic follow-up at the age of 7-10 years. Bilateral blindness appeared in four out of the 28 in the regional survey who had ROP. In the remaining 60 there had been no ROP. In(More)
PURPOSE To assess the myopia prevalence and profile in today's Danish medical students and to compare the pattern with previous and contemporary investigations. METHODS As part of the tutoring in ophthalmology 1996-98 Copenhagen medical students of five successive terms (in their 10th semester, n=294) were interviewed and spot-checked about their(More)
OBJECTIVE Assessment of longterm ophthalmic outcome in juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) with emphasis on visual acuity and identification of disease-related parameters associated with rheumatic eye affection. MATERIAL Sixty-five adults (52 females, 13 males) with a history of or still active JCA were assessed an average of 26.7 years after disease onset.(More)
