What is WAGR Syndrome?

  • WAGR Syndrome: A syndrome that is due to the deletion of chromosome 11.
  • WAGR Syndrome: A very rare congenital condition involving the complex of Wilms' tumor, aniridia, genitourinary abnormalities, and mental retardation. Wilms Tumor-Aniridia-Genitourinary Anomalies-Mental Retardation (WAGR) syndrome involves hemizygous deletions of several adjacent genes in chromosome region 11p13. Two or more of the four conditions must be present for an individual to be diagnosed with WAGR Syndrome. The clinical picture varies, depending upon the combination of abnormalities. --2004
