Purpose: To assess the frequency and type of associated malformations and chromosomal anomalies among patients with anophthalmia, microphthalmia, and coloboma in Sistan and Baluchestan province.

Methods: Patients with a clinical diagnosis of anophthalmia, microphthalmia, or coloboma were examined to find any anomaly in craniofacial, muscle-skeletal, cardiac, neurologic and urogenital systems. Also, karyotyping was performed to diagnose any chromosomal anomalies.

Results: Different kinds of systemic anomalies were detected in six of 26 patients (23.1 %). None of the patients had any kind of chromosomal anomalies. Neurologic disorders were the most frequent systemic anomalies among the patients (19.2%), followed by craniofacial anomalies (11.2 %). All of the systemic anomalies were found in anophthalmic and microphthalmic cases but not in cases with coloboma.

Conclusion: Due to the likelihood of systemic disorders in patients with anophthalmia and microphthalmia, regular and systemic examinations seems necessary in these patients.

Keywords: Anophthalmia, Chromosomal Anomalies, Coloboma, Microphthalmia, Systemic Anomalies
