OMIA:000325-9615 : Ectropion in Canis lupus familiaris (dog)

Categories: Vision / eye phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific description: Genetics Committee of the American College of Veterinary Opthalmologists (2021): Ecrtopion is "a conformational defect resulting in eversion of the eyelid margin, which may cause ocular irritation due to exposure. It is likely that ectropion is influenced by several factors defining the skin and other structures, which make up the eyelids, orbital contents, and conformation of the skull."
