Involvement in disease
Defects in FOXC1 are the cause of Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome type 3 (RIEG3) [MIM:602482]; also known as Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome (ARS) or Axenfeld syndrome or Axenfeld anomaly. It is characterized by posterior corneal embryotoxon, prominent Schwalbe line and iris adhesion to the Schwalbe line. Other features may be hypertelorism (wide spacing of the eyes), hypoplasia of the malar bones, congenital absence of some teeth and mental retardation. When associated with tooth anomalies, the disorder is known as Rieger syndrome. Glaucoma is a progressive blinding condition that occurs in approximately half of patients with Axenfeld-Rieger malformations. Defects in FOXC1 are the cause of iridogoniodysgenesis anomaly (IGDA) [MIM:601631]. IGDA is an autosomal dominant phenotype characterized by iris hypoplasia, goniodysgenesis, and juvenile glaucoma. Defects in FOXC1 are a cause of Peters anomaly (PAN) [MIM:604229]. Peters anomaly consists of a central corneal leukoma, absence of the posterior corneal stroma and Descemet membrane, and a variable degree of iris and lenticular attachments to the central aspect of the posterior cornea.
