Morning glory syndrome is a congenital optic disc anomaly in which much of the excavated colobomatous optic disc is filled with glial tissue. Ocular complications may include strabismus, reduced visual acuity and retinal detachment and it may have systemic associations as in Aicardi's syndrome. A patient with monocular morning glory syndrome and reduced visual acuity is reported. The pattern reversal visually evoked potential was reduced and the latency increased in the affected eye.
