Synonyms: Microcornea-rod-cone dystrophy-cataract-posterior staphyloma syndrome

MRCS syndrome is a rare genetic retinal dystrophy disorder characterized by bilateral microcornea rod-cone dystrophy cataracts and posterior staphyloma in the absence of other systemic features. Night blindness is typically the presenting manifestation and nystagmus strabismus astigmatism and angle closure glaucoma may be associated findings. Progressive visual acuity deterioration due to pulverulent-like cataracts results in poor vision ranging from no light perception to 20/400.
