Morning Glory Syndrome

Morning Glory Syndrome (MGS) is a birth defect of the hole in the back of the eye through which the optic nerve exits on its pathway to the brain. This results in a funnel-shaped optic nerve head with the retina dragged into it causing the retinal vessels to radiate out from its center like spokes. Reflection from within the eye may give the appearance of a white pupil. MGS nearly always affects only one eye. Vision in the affected eye may be severely impaired or may worsen. There is an increased risk of retinal detachment.

No hereditary conditions or occurrences in pregnancy have been found to be associated with MGS, which is more common in females.

Diagnosis
