Abstract
Lowe syndrome is, also known as oculocerebrorenal syndrome, a rare X-linked disorder characterized by congenital cataract, hypotonia, developmental delay, cogntive impairment, renal tubular dysfunction, and growth retardation. Recently the defevtive gene, OCRL-1 encoding [PtdIns(4,5)P2] 5-phosphatase, was cloned with mutations identified in patients. The diagnosis is based on characteristic clinical manifestations involving three major systems. Two patients had the history of congenital cataract, proteinuria seizure and developmental delay. Patient 2 showed right side hemiplegia due to cerebral infarction of left occipital lobe. There are no specific therapies for this disorder yet, and we provided seizure therapy by antiepileptics.
Key Words: Lowe syndrome, Cataract, Proteinuria, Developmental delay, Seizure
