Abstract

We describe two brothers with Joubert syndrome (JS). JS diagnosis was made on the basis of neurological findings and the presence of the characteristic "molar tooth sign", which was subsequently confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging. Both brothers demonstrated ptosis, hypotropia, exotropia, and horizontal pendular nystagmus. The younger brother had mild chorioretinal discoloration at the peripapillary region in both eyes, and a small coloboma at the inferior region of his right optic disc. The elder brother had coloboma in his right eye and a colobomatous optic disc in his left eye. Optical coherence tomography showed that the foveal architecture was preserved in both patients. We discuss the ocular findings, including those from optical coherence tomography, in JS, which has recently been recognized as ciliopathy.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 May 2014.
All research outputs
#1,968,207
of 4,507,509 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Ophthalmology
#163
of 866 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#46,591
of 120,785 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Ophthalmology
#17
of 91 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,509 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 55th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 866 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 120,785 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 91 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
