Optic disk contractility in morning glory disk anomaly

We report the case of a 4-year-old girl who presented with esotropia, enophthalmos, no light perception, and afferent pupillary defect in her left eye; fundus examination revealed morning glory disk anomaly. Ultrasound B-scan showed axial length increasing in the left eye on consensual light exposure. Magnetic resonance imaging/angiogram of the brain and orbits were within normal limits except for globe elongation posteriorly in the left eye. On examination under anesthesia with video indirect ophthalmoscopy, the left optic disk showed contraction and expansion when stimulated by strong light to the fellow eye and no spontaneous contraction on direct light stimulation. Morning glory disk contractility with increasing axial length on consensual light exposure in a child has not been reported previously.

We report a case of stretched scar syndrome in a 12-year-old girl with consecutive exotropia who had previously been treated with bilateral medial rectus muscle recessions. Stretched scar syndrome was confirmed intraoperatively, and bilateral medial rectus muscle plication was performed, successfully restoring normal alignment. Use of plication rather than resection of rectus muscles (stretched scar) can reduce the risk of a lost or slipped muscle and reduce surgical trauma and bleeding.

We report the first case of a corneal ocular ectasia in an infant with Zika virus congenital infection (CZS). We suspect that the ocular embryology and neurotropism of the Zika virus could account for the corneal involvement.
