OMIA 002399-13180 : Cryptophthalmos in Nymphicus hollandicus

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 123570 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific description: Buyukmihci et al. (1990): "Four unrelated cockatiels had various degrees of maldevelopment of the eyelids. Only 1 eye of the 8 was normal. The condition had features compatible with ankyloblepharon or cryptophthalmos. ... Anecdotal information along with our findings suggest that this condition, although uncommon, is widespread in the cockatiel population in the United States."
