Unilateral Acorea with Posterior Embryotoxon an Incidental Finding in Adult - Case Report

Dr. Vandana Jain | Dr. D. Rajakannan [2] | Dr. Priyanka Kolhe Nema [2] | Dr. Saurabh Bhalla [2]

Abstract: Acorea is a rare condition with a congenital absence of a pupil. It can present as familial or sporadic mode; however, the exact mode of inheritance remains unknown, with a likelihood of autosomal dominant inheritance. It leads to stimulus deprivation amblyopia (SDA) in the affected eye. If detected early in life, it can be managed surgically by pupilloplasty. There are several documented congenital anomalies of the pupil, such as dyscoria, anisocoria, microcorea, heterochromia, polycorea, etc. In this communication we delineate an unusual case of a 40-year-old female with unilateral acorea in association with posterior embryotoxon.
