Abstract

PURPOSE: To report bilateral aplasia of the optic nerves, chiasm, and tracts in an otherwise healthy infant. METHOD: Case report. RESULTS: Ophthalmologic examination disclosed bilateral microphthalmos and optic nerve aplasia. Physical, neurologic, and genetic evaluations were otherwise normal. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and orbits disclosed bilateral aplasia of the optic nerves, chiasm, and tracts. CONCLUSION: Bilateral aplasia of the optic nerves, chiasm, and tracts may occur in an otherwise healthy infant.
