Acorea, microphthalmia and cataract syndrome is a rare genetically inherited condition.[1]

Genetics[edit]

The cause of this condition is not presently known. It appears to be inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion.

Clinical features[edit]

Acorea or fibrous occlusion of the pupil, microphthalmia and cataracts are present in both eyes. Microcornea and iridocorneal dysgenesis also occur. The retina and optic disc are normal.
