Abstract

Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is an x-linked disorder characterized by a triad of thrombocytopenia, eczema, and recurrent infections. Until recently, survival into the second decade was rare. In the last few years, a better understanding of the syndrome has been achieved, and earlier recognition and newer modes of treatment have improved life. These patients are living longer and ophthalmologic presentation reflects this change. We present three case histories of patients followed for the past 15 years who have had, in association with this syndrome, eczema of the eyelids, episcleritis, marginal keratitis, and blepharitis.
