Abstract
Chiral perturbation theory in the anomaly sector for $N_f=2$ is extended to include dynamical photons, thereby allowing a complete treatment of isospin breaking. A minimal set of independent chiral lagrangian terms is determined and the divergence structure is worked out. There are contributions from irreducible and also from reducible oneloop graphs, a feature of ChPT at order larger than four. The generating functional is nonanomalous at order $e^2p^4$, but not necessarily at higher order in $e^2$. Practical applications to $\gamma\pi\to\pi\pi$ and to the $\pi^0\to2\gamma$ amplitudes are considered. In the latter case, a complete discussion of the corrections beyond current algebra is presented including quark mass as well as electromagnetic effects.
