Morning Glory Disc Anomaly

Morning Glory Disc Anomaly
This congenitally anomalous disc has features of both the morning glory disc anomaly and peripapillary staphyloma. The central glial tuft, the radially-disposed vessels, and the peripapillary pigmentary disturbance are all consistent with the morning glory disc anomaly. At the same time, the disc is relatively well-defined, and it appears to reside at the bottom of a deep, cup-shaped ectasia, features that are suggestive of a peripapillary staphyloma.
