Cat Eye Syndrome
Cat eye syndrome is a clinically recognizable congenital malformation syndrome consisting primarily of colobomas, anal anomalies, preauricular anomalies, cardiac and renal defects, and mild to moderate mental retardation. The name “cat eye” was introduced because of iris colobomas resembling the pupils of the cat.
