Title Isolated Congenital Optic Disc Anomalies
Subject Optic Pit With Serous Macular Detachment
Description An optic pit is a small defect in the optic disc that may be asymptomatic in isolation. Patients may develop an associated serous detachment of the macula. The condition is usually unilateral but may be bilateral. A fluorescein angiogram may demonstrate the serous detachment, and laser photocoagulation of the temporal disc margin may be necessary if the serous fluid fails to resolve after several weeks. Disease/Diagnosis: Optic Pit with Serour Macular Detachment.
