(1) Disease for SALL2 Gene


  • Coloboma, ocular, autosomal recessive (COAR) [MIM:216820]: An ocular anomaly resulting from abnormal morphogenesis of the optic cup and stalk, and incomplete fusion of the fetal intra-ocular fissure during gestation. The clinical presentation is variable. Some individuals may present with minimal defects in the anterior iris leaf without other ocular defects. More complex malformations create a combination of iris, uveoretinal and/or optic nerve defects without or with microphthalmia or even anophthalmia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24412933}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
