This unique picture is of a 10-year-old male child highlighting the varied presentation of Axenfeld Rieger's syndrome. The pupil in the left eye (LE) was slit-like, diagonal, and reacting briskly to light [Figure 1]a. This was due to the iris strand's attachment to the anteriorly displaced Schwalbe's line at 4- and 10-o clock [Figure 1]b. The right eye (RE) had a normal anterior segment with high iris insertion. Vision was 6/12 (−20 DS) in RE and 6/9 (−19 D) in LE. The child also had hypo- and microdontia, maxillary hypoplasia, and redundant umbilical skin. IOP should be regularly monitored in these eyes due to presence of angle dysgenesis.
