Patients with OFCD present with congenital ocular defects (unilateral/bilateral microphthalmia with congenital cataracts or just with congenital cataracts alone), facial anomalies (narrow face with a broad nasal tip, separated nasal cartilage, cleft palate), congenital heart defects (septal defects), and skeletal anomalies. A unique and cardinal diagnostic feature is dental root radiculomegaly and other dental abnormalities. Mild mental retardation and conductive or sensorineural hearing loss are less common.
