Aniridia

What is Aniridia?
Aniridia is the absence of the iris

It often leads to extreme sensitivity to light, reduced visual acuity, glaucoma, and even involuntary eye movements
It is associated with a number of ocular complications: nystagmus, amblyopia, buphthalmos, and cataract
It usually is congenital and involves both eyes

Aniridia in some individuals is associated with kidney nephroblastoma (Wilms tumor), genitourinary anomalies, or mental retardation and cerebellar ataxia (Gillespie syndrome), resulting in the WAGR syndrome

What is WAGR syndrome?
It is a rare genetic syndrome due to small interstitial deletion of p13 region of chromosome 11
Wilms' tumor
Aniridia
Genitourinary abnormalities
mental Retardation

Important fact:
Aniridia and hemihypertrophy are two physical findings observed in patients with Wilms’ tumor

That's all!

Today, while studying I realized most of the Anime characters have Aniridia @_@
My Japanese followers will get what this means ^_^
Anime character: Hinata from Naruto
-IkaN
 
Awkward moment when you realize all Anime characters have Aniridia
