Abstract

Morning glory disc anomaly (MGDA) is rare, but its fundoscopic findings are well documented in the ophthalmologic literature. It is sporadic, without sexual predisposition, and usually unilateral. Furthermore, it is associated with numerous central nervous system anomalies, including vasculopathy. This case series reports four pediatric patients over a 3-year period in whom ophthalmologic evaluation identified MGDA. Magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance angiography were subsequently performed to assess for associated intracranial vascular anomalies. This report is of significance because it demonstrates the spectrum of intracranial vasculopathy in this rare entity.
