We emphasize the ophthalmologic and clinical findings that help in diagnosing this syndrome, given there is no specific genetic test for this purpose. Conclusions: Although Kabuki's syndrome is not a common clinical entity, it is relevant to consider it in patients presenting the typical ophthalmological signs. It is of utmost importance to diagnose promptly to improve life expectancy in these patients. © 2010 Sociedad Mexicana de Oftalmología.
