Morning glory syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly in optic disc, which is characterized by defect in optic disc due to optic nerve dysgenesis, abnormal retinal vessels, and chorioretinal pigment disturbance around optic disc. Retinal detachment in morning glory syndrome occurs in 26% to 38% of the cases, which is thought to be non-rhegmatogenous in nature and usually develops in posterior pole of the retina. Surgical treatment is indicated in cases with bullous and total retinal detachment in morning glory syndrome. The authors successfully reattached the detached retina in a 3 year old boy with morning glory syndrome using trans pars plana vitrectomy, scleral buckling, retinotomy, silicone oid injection, and endolaser photocoagulation. The authors followed up for 15 weeks after operation, and the vision of left eye was counting finger and the retina remained to be reattached.
Key Words: Morning glory syndrome;Retinal detachment;Trans pars plana vitrectomy
