Purpose: Morning glory syndrome(MGS) is an optic nevre displasia which is mostly seen isolated but can also be together with ophthalmic, craniofacial, neurologic, and renal pathologies. Morning glory syndrome is thought to be due to a defect in embriogenesis.
Case Report: A 4-year-old girl who had esotropia in right eye was found to have right MGS and choroidal coloboma inferonasally on fundoscopic examination. Systemic evaluation was normal. After occlusion therapy there was an increase in vision.
Conclusion: In cases with MGS, both ocular and systemic evaluations are important in the diagnosis of abnormalities seen together with MGS. Morning glory syndrome is not a progressive disease and no treatment is needed.
