Answer

Peters anomaly

Corneal findings vary from minimal corneal edema to dense corneal leukoma. In some cases, corneal edema may regress with leaving residual scar behind.

Iridocorneal adhesions more commonly are located temporally.

Fifty percent of patients have glaucoma.

Associated anomalies may be present, as follows: anterior polar cataract, microphthalmia, microcornea, sclerocornea, or Axenfeld anomaly.
