Purpose: Here, we present two patients with congenital anterior staphyloma, with mutations in the CYP1B1 gene. Methods: We reviewed the medical records, including the genetic analysis. Results: Two unrelated patients presented with congenital anterior staphylomas. Both patients showed mutations in the CYP1B1 gene. The first patient, the product of a consanguineous marriage, showed a homozygous misssense mutation g.3987G>A (p.G61E). The second patient had compound heterozygous misssense mutations [g.4160 G>T (p.A119S) and g.8131 C>G (p.L432V)]. Conclusion: CYP1B1 gene mutation may be associated with congenital anterior staphylomas.
