Cryptophthalmos syndrome is a systemic malformation characterized by cryptophthalmos ('hidden eyes' or complete ablepharia) and craniofacial, otorhinolaryngologic, urogenital, and extremity abnormalities. The reported radiologic abnormalities include calcification of the lens, bilateral pareitofrontal flattening, parietal lacunae, basal encephalocele, syndactyly, urogenital anomalies, wide separation of the symphysis pubis, and bowel malrotation. We present the computed tomographic (CT) and sonographic findings in an infant with this syndrome.
