    Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome (ARS) is a disorder affecting the anterior segment of the eye, often leading to secondary glaucoma and several systemic malformations. It is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion that has been associated with genetic defects in PITX2 and FOXC1. Known genes CYP1b1,...

    Achondroplasia is an autosomal dominant congenital disorder of enchondral ossification. It is clinically characterized by low stature, craniofacial deformity, and vertebral malformation. Associated ophthalmic features include telecanthus, exotropia, angle anomalies, and cone-rod dystrophy. A...

    The Cantrell's pentalogy is a rare congenital malformation, integrated by five primary characteristics: defect in the lower third of the sternum, the anterior segment of the diaphragm, the diaphragmatic pericardium. in the midline abdominal and intracardiac congenital defects. Here is reported a...

    Background: The homeodomain-containing transcription factor PITX3 was shown to be essential for normal eye development in vertebrates. Human patients with point mutations in PITX3 demonstrate congenital cataracts along with anterior segment defects in some cases when one allele is affected and...
