Rieger anomaly

Rieger’s anomaly is a congenital ocular defect caused by anterior segment dysgenesis and is characterized by severe anterior chamber deformity with prominent strands and marked atrophy of the iris stroma with hole or pseudo-hole formation and corectopia. The term covers the association of these iris and pupil anomalies with the features of Axenfeld’s anomaly (see this term).
