PURPOSE: To document the association of neurohypophyseal dysgenesis with hypopituitarism in a child with primary bilateral anophthalmia. METHODS: An infant with bilateral anophthalmia underwent magnetic resonance imaging and endocrinologic evaluation. RESULTS: Magnetic resonance imaging showed dysgenesis confined to the hypothalamus and hypophyseal stalk. Endocrinologic testing showed low serum cortisol and pituitary gonadotropin levels. CONCLUSION: Magnetic resonance imaging can help predict which children with anophthalmia will have endocrinologic deficiencies.
