Choroidal coloblma, which is uncommon but not rare. occurs in areas in which both the neurosensory and the retinal pigment epithelium precursors fail to become confluent. Retinal detachment usually occurs due to breaks in the colobomatous area and has been noted in nearly 40% of the patients with choroidal ccloboma. Retinal detachment may be associated with a coloboma of the choroid soon after birth and can present a diagnostic dilemma. We experienced the choroidal coloboma associated with retinal detachment in an 18-day-old premature baby and a 40-day-old infant, one of which had multiple congenital anomalies. We present our two cases with a brief review of the literature related to choroidal coloboma.
