Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The causes of septo-optic dysplasia, amyoplasia, and gastroschisis are mostly unknown.

CASES:

We present a patient with septo-optic dysplasia and amyoplasia. We also present a patient with features of septo-optic dysplasia, gray matter heterotopias, and gastroschisis.

CONCLUSIONS:

These previously unreported combinations provide further support for vascular disruption in embryonic or fetal life as an etiological factor in these conditions.
