Optic Disc Dysplasia

Optic Disc Dysplasia
The disc is markedly anomalous. Although it has certain features in common with both coloboma and morning glory disc anomaly, the similarities are insufficient to permit classification with either of these entities. Note the ill-defined inferior excavation, the convoluted origin of the superior retinal vessels, the excessive number of vessels, the infrapapillary pigmentary disturbance, and the subtle band of retinal elevation immediately adjacent to the disc.
