Senior-Loken syndrome is a rare entity that combines familial juvenile nephronophthisis with retinal dystrophy. Herein, we report Senior-Loken syndrome in six members of an Iranian family with progressive blindness and renal failure since childhood. Although, this syndrome was reported from other parts of the world, report of six members of one family with this syndrome is rare. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report from Iran.
