Congenital cataract with microcornea and Peters' anomaly as expressions of one autosomal dominant gene.

Abstract

Hereditary congenital cataract is a well recognized but heterogeneous group of disorders; the cataracts may occur alone, or with other ocular or systemic abnormalities, and with all three common modes of inheritance. Peters' anomaly has usually been regarded as a sporadic condition with an insignificant risk of recurrence. A family is described in which congenital cataracts with microcornea, and Peters' anomaly, appear to be variable expressions of a generalized anterior segment disorder inherited as an autosomal dominant condition.
