Abstract

Ophthalmic abnormalities are amongst the 5 major criteria required for a diagnosis of Alagille syndrome (ALGS), of which embryotoxon, pseudopapilledema, and hypopigmented retinopathy are the most common. Papilledema with or without intracranial hypertension (ICHT) is rarely described. We report 9 pediatric cases of ALGS with bilateral papilledema, 5 of which were diagnosed with ICHT.
