The systemic and genetic significance of congenital optic disc anomalies.

Author information

  • 1Hospital for Sick Children, London.

Abstract

Optic disc anomalies have great significance as a clue to associated systemic problems and as a marker of inherited disease. Optic nerve hypoplasia and colobomas of the optic disc are the main visually significant disorders; however, the Morning Glory disc anomaly and Aicardi's syndrome may also be associated with visual impairment.
