This multimodal image set depicts a patient with Morning glory anomaly with intra- and subretinal fluid changes that are contiguous to the optic disk. Morning glory can be associated with cerebral skull malformations such as a transsphenoidal basal encephalocele as well as cerebrovascular anomalies such as vascular hypoplasia or Moya Moya disease. In terms of the retina, Morning glory related complications are similar to other cavitary optic disk abnormalities such as coloboma or optic disk pit and include serous retinal detachments as well as rhegmatogenous retinal detachments. In this particular case, close observation and follow up with serial imaging was recommended.
