VAZQUEZ GOMEZ, Felisa et al. Laser therapy in ocular involvement after diagnosis of incontinentia pigmenti in a child. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2019, vol.117, n.3, pp.e252-e256. ISSN 0325-0075.

Incontinentia pigmenti is a rare neurocutaneous disorder with a frequency of 1 in 40,000 newborn; it is associated with mutations in IKBKG gene in Xq28, inherited as an X-linked dominant trait. Clinical manifestations detected since the newborn period are highly variable, with skin, teeth, eyes, and nervous system manifestations, and each with a characteristic differential diagnosis. We present a pediatric patient diagnosed with incontinentia pigmenti at the first week of life. In the initial ophthalmologic evaluation, retinal vascular lesions were observed. The outcomes of laser treatment of the ischemic peripheral retina were good and resulted in stability of vision.
