Abstract

Ophthalmological investigations of untreated Laron syndrome patients revealed retarded growth of the ocular globe. The shorter anterior length of the anterior chamber was normalized by IGF-I treatment. The retinal vascularization was reduced as were the number of tortuosities of the arteries. Two patients with diabetes mellitus developed retinal neovascularization.
