Congenital Anomalies of the Optic Disc

Track 3:  Congenital Anomalies of the Optic Disc

Congenital optic nerve head anomalies are a group of structural malformations of the optic nerve head and surrounding tissues, which may cause congenital visual impairment and blindness Anomalous optic discs (particularly excavated optic disc anomalies and pseudo papilledema with or without optic disc druse), may produce episodes of transient visual loss. Congenital lesions of the retina, optic nerve, chiasm, tract or retro geniculate pathways are associated with segmental hypoplasia of the corresponding portions of each optic nerve. Megalopapilla is a generic term that connects an abnormally large optic disc that lacks the inferior excavation of optic disc coloboma. Repeat visual field tests after correcting for the myopia refractive error often eliminate the field defect which confirms its refractive nature.
