Abstract

An unusual case of Rieger's syndrome is described. The patient exhibited hypoplasia of the iris stroma, iris strands bridging the angle, and posterior embryotoxon, associated with hypoplastic maxilla, complete anodontia, and mental retardation. Chromosome studies revealed a presumptive isochromosome of the long arm of chromosome number 6. The significance of this latter finding is discussed.
