Polycoria associated with a genetic disorder

Polycoria is a pathological condition of the eye characterized by more than one pupillary opening in the iris.[1] It may be congenital or result from a disease affecting the iris.[1]

Polycoria is extremely rare, and other conditions are frequently mistaken for it.[2]
