We report on a boy and a girl with bilateral anophthalmia and proximal esophageal atresia. In addition to vestigial optic nerves and chiasma, MRI studies showed other central nervous system abnormalities; one had ectopic tissue in the hypothalamic region, and the other hand generalized ventriculomegaly associated with atrophy. Two other cases, both males, have been reported with anophthalmia and esophageal atresia as their only malformations. These 4 cases are reviewed in light of recent advances in the understanding of ocular embryogenesis and of the midbrain as a development field. Concurrence of these defects appears to be non-random.
