Congenital alacrima is an autosomal dominant disorder showing markedly deficient lacrimation and punctate corneal epithelial erosions. The G (Opitz-Frias) syndrome is also an autosomal dominant disorder characterised by hypertelorism, hypospadias, strider, and dysphagia. Here we report a 5-year-old boy with the G syndrome presenting congenital alacrima.
