The association of abnormalities of the optic nerves, optic chiasm, and optic tracts with anomalies of the midline structures in the brain-an absent septum pellucidum etc was reported and called "septo-optic dysplasia". Also, it was noted that septo-optic dysplasia could be associated with hypopituitary dwarfism. It occurs more commonly in first born children and children born to young or diabetic mothers. We report a case of septo-optic dysplasia with literature, who had complained of severe visual impairment associated with nystagmus, bilateral optic nerve hypoplasia, absent septum pellucidum, and normal range of hormone studies.
Key Words: Absent septum pellucidum;Optic nerve hypoplasia;Septo-optic dysplasia
