Peripheral Nonperfusion and Tractional Retinal Detachment Associated with Congenital Optic Nerve Anomalies

Purpose: To report an association of congenital optic nerve anomalies with peripheral retina nonperfusion and to describe the clinical manifestations and treatment. Design: Retrospective, observational case series. Participants: Fifteen patients with congenital optic nerve anomalies referred for pediatric retina consultation were studied. Sixteen eyes of 9 patients with optic nerve hypoplasia and 8 eyes of 6 patients with other congenital optic nerve anomalies, including optic nerve coloboma, morning glory disc, and peripapillary staphyloma, were included. Methods: All patients underwent examinations under anesthesia. Wide-angle retina photographs and fluorescein angiograms were reviewed. (Read more...)
