Answer

Genetic consultation helps to subclassify the diseases and sometimes to predict the prognosis.

Consult with other specialties regarding the existing systemic abnormalities.

Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome: Patients may need workup for associated systemic abnormalities, so referring to a pediatrician or an internist is important.

Phakomatoses have typical ocular findings. Because of their systemic nature, evaluation by the proper specialty is necessary.

For the sporadic type of aniridia, consultation with nephrology is necessary to evaluate the possibility of Wilms tumor.
