Persistence of the Primary Vitreous in Association With the Morning Glory Disc Anomaly

J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus. Jan-Feb 1984;21(1):5-7.


Two patients with the morning glory disc anomaly are reported. In one, fibrovascular stalk passed forward into the vitreous cavity, while in the second a persistent hyaloid artery extended anteriorly from a tuft of fibrous tissue to the posterior lens capsule. These cases suggest that in some eyes the morning glory disc anomaly occurs as a variant of persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV).
