Nager syndrome, also called preaxial acrofacial dysostosis, comprises two groups of defects involving the limbs and craniofacial region, respectively. This syndrome is rare and only 70 cases have been reported in the literature. The exact cause of this syndrome is unknown, but there is indication that it is genetically based. Ocular manifestations of this syndrome include widely separated downward slanting eyes, absence of eyelashes, ptosis of upper eyelids and colobomas on the inner aspect of lower eyelids. We report limbal dermoid in a patient with Nager syndrome. We did not find such an association of "Limbal dermoid in Nager acrofacial dysostosis syndrome" on PubMed using Nager acrofacial dysostosis, limbal dermoid and ocular manifestations as the keywords.
