From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Renal-coloboma syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic disease marked by underdevelopment (hypoplasia) of the kidney and colobomas of the optic nerve. The syndrome results from mutation of a copy of the PAX2 gene, a gene which is important in the development of both the eye and the kidney.
