Okulo-dentales Syndrom Typ Rutherfurd
Houston and Shotts (1966) restudied the family reported by Rutherfurd (1931). In 5 generations affected persons showed corneal dystrophy, hypertrophy of gums, and failure of tooth eruption. Seven persons in 4 generations were affected with 3 instances of male-to-male transmission. Houston and Shotts (1966) described the corneal opacities as curtain-like, involving the superior part of the cornea. Although mental retardation and aggressive behavior had been noted, it was not certain whether these abnormalities were manifestations of the syndrome or segregated independently.
