  Title Stickler’s syndrome: review and differential diagnosis [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 1995 Jun;39(2):89-93
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Stickler’s syndrome is an autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder also known as hereditary progressive arthro-ophthalmopathy. It is estimated to affect 1 in 10,000 Americans. The clinical findings include myopia, retinal detachment, vitreal degeneration, premature degenerative changes, hypermobility of joints, sensorineural hearing loss, cleft palate and midfacial hypoplasia. The syndrome is usually diagnosed in childhood. However, varying degrees of presentation may delay the diagnosis. This case illustrates the clinical history of a woman who presented to a chiropractic office with low back pain, seven years after a diagnosis of Stickler’s syndrome, after suffering many of the symptoms of this condition throughout her life.
