Abstract: We present an infant with heterochromia of the irides and a motility disorder of the oesophagus. The association between Hirschsprung's disease and heterochromia of the irides has been reported in the past and has been explained by the common origin during embryogenesis of the parasympathetic ganglion cells and the stroma of the iris.
