A 10-year-old boy presented to the pediatric department with an inability to walk without help for 1 month and an abnormal posture of the right upper limb for 6 months. Systemic findings included coarse tremor and dystonia of the right upper limb with choreoathetoid movements of the left upper limb. He had an expression-less facies and cognitive decline. He was referred for ophthalmic examination. Slit-lamp photographs of the anterior segment of both eyes are depicted in [Figure 1]. The fundus was normal in either eye.
