Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A female infant presented with poor feeding, hypotonia, prolonged jaundice, seizure and wandering nystagmus. A case of septo-optic dysplasia was proved by demonstrating the absence of septum pellucidum, small optic discs and hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction at the age of three months. It is stressed that a diagnosis of septo-optic dysplasia must be entertained in infants who present with prolonged jaundice and hypoglycemia, particularly when rotatory nystagmus is associated.
