Abstract

PURPOSE: To report bilateral aplasia of the optic nerves, chiasm, and tracts in an otherwise healthy infant. METHOD: Case report.

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.
