Rieger anomaly

Last revised by Daniel J Bell on 24 Dec 2018

The Rieger anomaly refers to the maldevelopment of the anterior chamber of the ocular globe. The iris and cornea do not form correctly, findings including:

  • hypoplastic iris stroma
  • corectopia: an off-center pupil in the iris
  • colobomas of the iris (pseudopolycoria)

Patients are at increased risk of glaucoma and associated visual loss.
