Ocular coloboma-imperforate anus


Coloboma of the iris (giving the appearance of a vertical pupil, hence the name "cat eye"), atresia of the anus, preauricular tags or fistulae, congenital cardiovascular abnormalities, urinary tract anomalies, and reduced growth rate. Mental retardation is not a consistent feature and, when present, it is usually mild.


* Mild mental retardation * Emotional retardation * Wide-set eyes * Down-slanting palpebral fissures * Inferior coloboma of iris


Anal fissure results from passage of large, hard stools that stretch the lining beyond its limits. It may also be due to prolonged diarrhea, strain on the perineum during childbirth and, rarely, from scar stenosis. Occasionally, anal fissure is secondary to proctitis, anal tuberculosis, cancer, or Crohn’s disease. Anal fissures are common in young infants but may occur at any age, with incidence decreasing rapidly with age. Studies suggest that 80% of infants will have had an anal fissure by age 1. Fissures are less common among school-age children than infants. They affect males and females equally.
