Incontinentia Pigmenti Treatment
The treatment for babies with incontinentia pigmenti should be focused on the potential for the rapid development of irreversible blindness rather than on the obvious skin changes. If the ophthalmologist finds retinal abnormalities prior to the development of retinal detachment or bleeding, laser or other surgical procedures can be performed to prevent visual loss. In addition, if retinal detachment is found early, surgical intervention can preserve the child's vision.
