 Abstract

The spectrum of ocular developmental disorders includes a wide range of malformations, depending on the embryonic age of commencement of the disease. One example of these malformations is Anophthalmia. It is an uncommon congenital anomaly associated with problems of social integration especially in developing climes. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays important role in the diagnosis and differentiation of these malformations. We report a case of a child born with congenital anophthalmia to describe MRI features of this rare ocular anomaly.


Key words: Anophthalmia, congenital, magnetic resonance imaging.
