Abrogation of Stem Loop Binding Protein (Slbp) function leads to a failure of cells to transition from proliferation to differentiation, retinal coloboma and midline axon guidance deficits. Through forward genetic screening for mutations affecting visual system development, we identified prominent coloboma and cell-autonomous retinal neuron differentiation, lamination and retinal axon projection defects in eisspalte (ele) mutant zebrafish. Additional axonal deficits were present, most notably
De Novo Variants in WDR37 Are Associated with Epilepsy, Colobomas, Dysmorphism, Developmental Delay, Intellectual Disability, and Cerebellar Hypoplasia. WD40 repeat-containing proteins form a large family of proteins present in all eukaryotes. Here, we identified five pediatric probands with de novo variants in WDR37, which encodes a member of the WD40 repeat protein family. Two probands shared one variant and the others have variants in nearby amino acids outside the WD40 repeats. The probands (...) exhibited shared phenotypes of epilepsy, colobomas, facial dysmorphology reminiscent of CHARGE syndrome, developmental delay and intellectual disability, and cerebellar hypoplasia. The WDR37 protein is highly conserved in vertebrate and invertebrate model organisms and is currently not associated with a human disease. We generated a null allele of the single Drosophila ortholog to gain functional insights and replaced the coding region of the fly gene CG12333/wdr37 with GAL4. These flies are homozygous
Neglected Congenital Glaucoma with Lens Coloboma. To report a case of lens coloboma in a case of neglected primary congenital glaucoma.A 5-year-old boy was brought by the parents with complaints of diminution of vision in both eyes noticed for 8 months. There was a history of enlargement of eyes since 1 year of age.Clinical examination revealed bilateral large eyes with limbal stretching and Haab's striae and lens coloboma in the right eye. Dilated examination revealed scalloped border (...) of the crystalline lens superotemporally with broken zonules and lens coloboma in inferotemporal quadrant with absent zonules. There was advanced optic nerve head cupping in both eyes. This lens coloboma is likely an acquired condition due to extensive stretching of the lens and zonules secondary to globe enlargement in neglected buphthalmos.A neglected case of congenital glaucoma can lead to lens subluxation along with lens coloboma.
Bilateral congenital macular coloboma and cataract: A case report. The case with congenital macular coloboma and cataract was rarely reported, and the pathogenic gene of the disease is still not clear. Moreover, it is difficult to improve the visual acuity of the eye with this disease.An 11-year-old boy presented low visual acuity and horizontal nystagmus in both eyes. Ophthalmologic examination showed the patient with bilateral congenital coloboma and cataract. The visual acuity of the patient (...) improved slightly after cataract surgery. Heterozygous mutations of frizzled-4 (FZD4) and nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-containing protein 2 (NOD2) were identified by next-generation sequencing in this case.Congenital macular coloboma and cataract of both eyes.We performed the standard phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation on both eyes of the patient for the treatment of congenital cataract, and then followed up the fundus lesions regularly.Cataract surgery may improve
Intercalary membrane as the inner wall overlying optic and chorio-retinal colobomas. Deep penetration Swept Source-OCT study Five eyes of four patients were studied to analyze the structure of the inner wall of optic and chorioretinal colobomas using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). The colobomatous cavities and their relationship with adjacent structures were examined. SS-OCT permitted the study of the colobomatous cavities in all cases. In four of those cases, a Y-shaped (...) intercalary membrane (ICM) was identified, with an origin in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), which covered the coloboma and in one case the coloboma was in contact with the vitreous cavity. Vitreous adhesion to the internal wall of the coloboma was found in three cases. No clinical or tomographic maculopathy was observed in any patient. High-resolution deep penetration SS-OCT allows in vivo study of optic and chorioretinal colobomas, identifying the RNFL as the main component of the ICM overlying

Mutation of IPO13 causes recessive ocular coloboma, microphthalmia, and cataract Ocular coloboma is a developmental structural defect of the eye that often occurs as complex ocular anomalies. However, its genetic etiology remains largely unexplored. Here we report the identification of mutation (c.331C>T, p.R111C) in the IPO13 gene in a consanguineous family with ocular coloboma, microphthalmia, and cataract by a combination of whole-exome sequencing and homozygosity mapping. IPO13 encodes (...) an importin-B family protein and has been proven to be associated with the pathogenesis of coloboma and microphthalmia. We found that Ipo13 was expressed in the cornea, sclera, lens, and retina in mice. Additionally, the mRNA expression level of Ipo13 decreased significantly in the patient compared with its expression in a healthy individual. Morpholino-oligonucleotide-induced knockdown of ipo13 in zebrafish caused dose-dependent microphthalmia and coloboma, which is highly similar to the ocular
Morphogenetic defects underlie Superior Coloboma, a newly identified closure disorder of the dorsal eye The eye primordium arises as a lateral outgrowth of the forebrain, with a transient fissure on the inferior side of the optic cup providing an entry point for developing blood vessels. Incomplete closure of the inferior ocular fissure results in coloboma, a disease characterized by gaps in the inferior eye and recognized as a significant cause of pediatric blindness. Here, we identify eight (...) patients with defects in tissues of the superior eye, a congenital disorder that we term superior coloboma. The embryonic origin of superior coloboma could not be explained by conventional models of eye development, leading us to reanalyze morphogenesis of the dorsal eye. Our studies revealed the presence of the superior ocular sulcus (SOS), a transient division of the dorsal eye conserved across fish, chick, and mouse. Exome sequencing of superior coloboma patients identified rare variants in a Bone
Familial congenital cataract, coloboma, and nystagmus phenotype with variable expression caused by mutation in PAX6 in a South African family To report on a clinical and genetic investigation of a large, multigenerational South African family of mixed ancestry with autosomal dominant congenital cataracts, coloboma, and nystagmus.Ophthalmic examination was performed in 27 individuals from the same admixed South African family. DNA was sampled from either peripheral blood or buccal swabs in all (...) 27 individuals, and whole genome sequencing was performed in six individuals. Sanger sequencing was used to validate the probable mutation in the remaining family members.Twenty-seven family members with 19 affected individuals were included in the study. The predominant phenotype, with highly variable expression, was congenital cataract (14 individuals), posterior segment coloboma (17 individuals), and nystagmus (18 individuals). Other features present included high myopia, microcornea
Surgical technique for management of isolated lenticular coloboma with high corneal astigmatism We describe a surgical technique for the correction of isolated congenital lenticular coloboma associated with high corneal astigmatism. Transscleral fixation of the capsular bag with a single eyelet Cionni capsular tension ring was followed by in-the-bag implantation of a toric intraocular lens (IOL). This lead to complete correction of the lenticular defect and perfect alignment of the toric lens (...) . In this case, the child attained an unaided distance visual acuity of 20/30 following amblyopia therapy and a well-aligned toric IOL at 12 months of follow-up. This technique can be used in cases with concomitant lenticular coloboma and significant corneal astigmatism.
