To report two cases of morning glory disc anomaly with findings in the anterior segment: a rare entity
A two–year–old female presented to the ophthalmology clinic of our hospital and was found to have a congenital anomaly of the optic disc consistent with Morning glory syndrome and also had posterior embryotoxon, posterior subcapsular cataract and corneal opacity. A three–month–old female presented with complaints of a black dot seen in the red reflex of the left eye. She was found to have morning glory disc anomaly with congenital cataract, posterior lenticonus, lens coloboma and elongated ciliary processes in the left eye.
The first case is being followed–up annually and is found to be stable with the patching done for amblyopia in the earlier years. The second case on follow–up was found to have a cataract significant enough to need surgery and lensectomy–vitrectomy was performed in the left eye.
Morning glory syndrome can also be associated with abnormalities of the anterior segment and such cases warrant a complete ophthalmological examination on every follow–up.
