Conjunctival biopsy in infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy.

PURPOSE: To describe a case of infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy with optic nerve atrophy and to discuss the diagnostic role of conjunctival biopsy. METHODS: We performed a complete ophthalmologic examination and a diagnostic conjunctival biopsy on a girl with a neurodegenerative disease. RESULTS: On the basis of "spheroid" inclusions in the unmyelinated axons, we diagnosed infantile neuoroaxonal dystrophy. CONCLUSIONS: Optic atrophy is an important finding in infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy, and conjunctival biopsy is a reliable and very convenient diagnostic test.[1]
