Retinal involvement has been documented in a number of patients with pigment dispersion syndrome, which also appears to be associated with a higher than normal risk of retinal detachment. We studied 24 patients with this syndrome to determine the prevalence of lattice degeneration and other retinal disorders associated with a predisposition to detachment. Lattice degeneration was found in 8 of 24 patients examined, with a prevalence that is significantly higher than that reported for normal subjects. Four eyes presented areas of retinoschisis and only one displayed a rhegmatogenous detachment. A father and son (both myopes) were found to have similar lattice lesions in the same retinal quadrants. These findings suggest that pigment dispersion syndrome may be associated with developmental anomalies that are not restricted to the anterior chamber but involve other portions of the bulb as well.
