  • Each child in the BOSU data set was assigned one of four outcomes, three in which the child's identifiers matched those in the NCAS data set, and one when no match was present ( Table 1 ).[nature.com]
  • This can be present at birth, or it can develop later. If a hemangioma begins pressing on a nerve or if there is a carotid artery dissection (a splitting of the artery that feeds the brain), Horner's syndrome can develop.[chw.org]

  • Chromosomes, which are present in the nucleus of human cells, carry the genetic information for each individual. Human body cells normally have 46 chromosomes.[rarediseases.org]
  • If photophobia is present in patients with corectopia and polycoria, contact lenses may be used to cover the holes in the iris. Prognosis Prognosis is good, particularly in the absence of glaucoma.[orpha.net]

  • The nerve dysfunction can cause ptosis (droopy eyelid), miosis (small pupil when compared to the other), and anhidrosis (lack of sweating) on one side of the face. This can be present at birth, or it can develop later.[chw.org]

  • Parents will be made aware of the visual potential of the child, the possible need for special educational placement, and the long-term prognosis and/or progression of the disease. In some cases low vision aids may be necessary or helpful.[childrensnational.org]
  • The longer the period of visual disability, the worse the prognosis in terms of visual acuity. The most common causes are: Strabismus - secondary to suppression of images from the affected eye to avoid double vision.[patient.info]


  • Etiology Patients with ARS have been found to have mutations in the transcription factor genes PITX2 (4q25) and FOXC1 (6p25). A large number of different mutations have been identified but there is no clear genotype-phenotype relationship.[orpha.net]
  • Etiology The embryonic origins of morning glory anomaly is not clear but is hypothesized to be either due to a defect in fetal fissure closure or a primary mesenchymal abnormality. [1] Risk Factors Morning glory anomaly is more common in females and more[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • Although there are few sources with which to compare these findings directly, it is probable that bilateral disease is more common than unilateral in the United Kingdom, reflecting differences in relevant etiologic factors.[iovs.arvojournals.org]
