Pax6132-14Neu/Pax6+ and Pax6132-14Neu/Pax6132-14Neu histological adult eye sections.

• fusion of the lens to the cornea is associated with a defect in the corneal stroma and endothelium, which is filled with epithelial cells continuous with those covering the conically projecting anterior surface of the lens
• defect in the corneal stroma, which is filled with epithelial cells
• in the lens, a plaque of multilayered epithelial cells and degenerated cortical fibers underlay the fusion point
• the anterior pole of the lens is fused to the cornea
• failure of lens vesicle to separate from ectoderm
• eyes in which the lens and cornea are separated display an anterior polar cataract and central corneal defect involving the stroma, Descemet's membrane, and endothelium
