WAGR syndrome is a rare, sporadic genetic disorder characterized by W-Wilm's tumour, A-Aniridia, G-Genito-urinary anomalies and R-Mental Retardation due to de novo deletion in the distal band of 11p13 chromosome. It is a contiguous gene deletion syndrome. The syndrome is usually recognized by sporadic aniridia present at birth, often followed by the development of Wilm's tumour in early childhood, but possible at any age. Here we report a case of 4 years old female child having bilateral aniridia, abdominal mass and mental retardation.
