We report 2 cases who presented with bilaterally displaced Schwalbe ring as strange cord like structure in anterior chamber with iris tissue adhesions.
Conclusion: Axenfeld – Reiger syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease with ocular findings involving cornea (megalocornea), iris (iris atrophy,correctopia) and angle (anterior insertion of iris, prominent Schwalbe line). We report unsual case of detached Schwalbe’s line with iris tissue adhesions in anterior chamber A-R syndrome.
