Aim: To report a case of bilateral anterior and posterior lenticonus with sensorineural hearing loss, without renal associations.
Case Report: We describe a case of bilateral anterior and posterior lenticonus associated with sensorineural hearing loss and absence of family history. No renal association could be identified on urine routine and microscopy or ultrasound abdomen. Clear lens extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens (PCIOL) was performed for the patient.
Conclusion: The presence of bilateral anterior and posterior lenticonus is rare but may be a presentation of Alport syndrome. Clear lens extraction with intraocular lens is a viable treatment option with good visual prognosis.
