To report a pediatric case of bilateral Brown-Mclean syndrome after cataract surgery.
Case report. A 12-year-old patient presented for routine ophthalmic examination after congenital cataract surgery performed at 2 months of age.
The patient was diagnosed with bilateral Brown-Mclean syndrome by slit lamp examination. No treatment was required because the patient was asymptomatic and had a clear central cornea.
This is the first described case of Brown-McLean syndrome in a pediatric patient. This case represents the importance of clinical examination in the pediatric age group after cataract surgery because of the risk of patients developing peripheral edema.
