Aniridia or iridremis is a Clinical term denoting absence of the iris in whole or in part. Actually, total absence has not been reported, as there has been rudimentary iris tissue in all cases reported in the literature. Because of its extra ordinary propensities as a dominant characteristic, occasionally an irregular dominant, and because of its stricking appearance which facilitates investigation, it has received extensive study by geneticists. Indeed, so interesting are its hereditary and pathologic aspects that these have received for more attention that have therapeutic measures for aniridic cases. I have experienced a case of aniridic family, a 40 years old women and her two sons, without other disturbances during their life saving, except poor vision, which was not significant of in correction for visual acuity.
