Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome 3 (RIEG3) [MIM:602482]: An autosomal dominant disorder of morphogenesis that results in abnormal development of the anterior segment of the eye, and results in blindness from glaucoma in approximately 50% of affected individuals. Features include posterior corneal embryotoxon, prominent Schwalbe line and iris adhesion to the Schwalbe line, hypertelorism, hypodontia, sensorineural deafness, redundant periumbilical skin, and cardiovascular defects such as patent ductus arteriosus and atrial septal defect. When associated with tooth anomalies, the disorder is known as Rieger syndrome. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

Iridogoniodysgenesis anomaly (IGDA) [MIM:601631]: Autosomal dominant phenotype characterized by iris hypoplasia, goniodysgenesis, and juvenile glaucoma. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.  
  • UniProtKB
Peters anomaly (PETAN) [MIM:604229]: Consists of a central corneal leukoma, absence of the posterior corneal stroma and Descemet membrane, and a variable degree of iris and lenticular attachments to the central aspect of the posterior cornea. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
