    Aniridia is an autosomal dominant congenital malformation associated with mutations in the PAX6 gene. It can be associated with deletion in the contiguous WT1 gene, leading to WAGR syndrome, characterized by Wilm tumor, aniridia, genitourinary anomalies, and mental retardation. Persistent fetal vasculature is a developmental malformation caused by incomplete regression of hyaloid vasculature. Most cases of persistent fetal vasculature occur sporadically; however, some inherited forms are described. We report a case of genetically confirmed WAGR associated with congenital cataract and persistent fetal vasculature.Copyright © 2023 American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.
