“…The findings on lens involvement are not consistent and include a wide spectrum of lens abnormalities ranging from lens opacification to the formation of cataracts. In 1963, Muller and Brunsting reported that severe cataract was found to cause visual disturbances in five patients (three posterior subcapsular cataracts, one diffuse cortical cataract, and one mature cataract) with alopecia universalis . Muller and Brunsting assumed a strong relationship between AA and cataract formation and postulated that it might reflect ectodermal reactivity.…”

“…Horner syndrome, pupil ectopia, iris atrophy, increased tortuosity of the fundus vessels, bilateral keratoconus, color changes in the iris, depigmentation focus in the iris, and choroid and retina pigment hyperplasia have been reported in AA. Further, control studies have shown lens calcification and cataract formation to be more frequent in patients with AA . Lens involvement and cataract formation are frequent occurrences in dermatologic diseases.…”

“…(1) we considered all the lens changes apart from the visual acuity impairment, and (2) our control population was unaffected by skin diseases [11,12]. At the present time we cannot assess the clinical significance of these lens changes, and only a close follow up of our patients will make clear a relation ship, if any between the clinical course of al opecia and the evolution of these changes.…”

“…Ophthalmological examinations showed lens changes in 65 patients and alterations in the retinal epithelium in 28 patients. The relationships between pigment cells and hair cycle are discussed.Some cutaneous diseases are associated with lens changes named 'syndermatotic cataract'; lens changes have also been de scribed in alopecia areata, but this associa tion is still under discussion [4,9,11,12]. In volvement of retinal pigmentary epithelium in patients with alopecia areata has been re ported by Brown et al [3], The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence and the aspects of the ocular changes which oc cur in alopecia areata.
