Ocular lesions included microphthalmia, multiple PPMs (iris-to-iris and iris-to-lens), microphakia with cataract formation, myovascularised membrane surrounding the cataractous lens and expanding into the vitreous towards the retina, retinal detachment, and retinal dysplasia (Figure 2).
Lenticular abnormalities, such as cataract or microphakia, are common hallmarks of the anterior segment dysgenesis.
In conclusion, we present a case of complex microphthalmic syndrome in pig, involving structural changes of anterior chamber (multiple iris-to-iris and iris-to-lens PPMs), lens (microphakia, hypermature cataract), and posterior segment (vitreal myovascularised membrane, retinal dysplasia with occasional rosettes in the inner nuclear layer, and retinal detachment).
