Abstract

Morning Glory Syndrome (MGS) is an uncommon congenital anomaly of the eye nerve (optic nerve) that resembles a flower known as morning glory, impairs vision, and may be associated with both ocular and non-ocular abnormalities. It has a characteristic fundoscopic appearance consisting of a large funnel-shaped cavity on the optical disc. We register an unusual congenital anomaly of the optic disc in a three-year-old female child.
