Congenital absence of the eye or eyes.
A ready-made or custom-made prosthesis of glass or plastic shaped and colored to resemble the anterior portion of a normal eye and used for cosmetic reasons. It is attached to the anterior portion of an orbital implant (ORBITAL IMPLANTS) which is placed in the socket of an enucleated or eviscerated eye. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Congenital or developmental anomaly in which the eyeballs are abnormally small.
Birth defect that results in a partial or complete absence of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. It may be isolated or a part of a syndrome (e.g., AICARDI'S SYNDROME; ACROCALLOSAL SYNDROME; ANDERMANN SYNDROME; and HOLOPROSENCEPHALY). Clinical manifestations include neuromotor skill impairment and INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY of variable severity.
The X-shaped structure formed by the meeting of the two optic nerves. At the optic chiasm the fibers from the medial part of each retina cross to project to the other side of the brain while the lateral retinal fibers continue on the same side. As a result each half of the brain receives information about the contralateral visual field from both eyes.
Congenital structural deformities, malformations, or other abnormalities of the cranium and facial bones.
The 2nd cranial nerve which conveys visual information from the RETINA to the brain. The nerve carries the axons of the RETINAL GANGLION CELLS which sort at the OPTIC CHIASM and continue via the OPTIC TRACTS to the brain. The largest projection is to the lateral geniculate nuclei; other targets include the SUPERIOR COLLICULI and the SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEI. Though known as the second cranial nerve, it is considered part of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.

Compiling a national register of babies born with anophthalmia/microphthalmia in England 1988-94. (1/86)

AIM: To describe the prevalence of anophthalmia/microphthalmia in babies born in England 1988-94, as well as their overall survival, and the incidence of associated eye and non-eye malformations; to determine the usefulness of different sources of medical and health service information for establishing a retrospective register of anophthalmia/microphthalmia. METHODS: Multiple sources for initial (retrospective) case ascertainment were surveyed, followed by questionnaires to clinicians to establish severity, associated malformations, and aetiology for England, 1988-94. The population surveyed was all births in England for this time period (4,570,350 births). Cases included live births, stillbirths, or terminations after prenatal diagnosis of congenital anomaly, with anophthalmia/microphthalmia, with or without other malformations and syndromes. Trisomy 13 was subsequently excluded. RESULTS: The proportion of cases notified by any one information source was not more than 26% (Office for National Statistics Register 22%, paediatricians 26%, district sources 25%). Sixty nine per cent of cases (51% of severe cases) were notified by only one source. A total of 449 cases were reported, prevalence 1.0 per 10,000 births. The prevalence was stable over time, although the proportion notified by clinicians rose in more recent years. Thirty four per cent of affected babies had mild microphthalmia. Of those with severe anophthalmia/microphthalmia, 51% were bilateral, other eye malformations were present in 72%, non-eye malformations in 65%, and a "known aetiology" was attributed in 22%. Three quarters of those severely affected survived infancy. CONCLUSIONS: Despite high response rates from the sources of information contacted, the lack of duplication between sources indicates the difficulties of retrospective ascertainment and the need for multiple sources when establishing a register. Anophthalmos/microphthalmos is usually associated with other malformations. Most cases are of unknown aetiology.  (+info)

Anophthalmia in litters of female rats treated with the food-derived carcinogen, 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine. (2/86)

Anophthalmia in litters of pregnant rats treated with 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine (PhIP), a food-derived carcinogen, was incidentally encountered in a risk-assessment study with 2-generation exposure to PhIP. Female Fischer 344 animals were given 200 ppm PhIP in the diet for 4 wk before mating with nontreated males and also during gestation and lactation periods. Mean numbers of newborn rats per litter in control and PhIP-treated groups were 7.9 +/- 2.9 and 7.1 +/- 1.6 in trial 1 and 8.3 +/- 1.9 and 6.1 +/- 2.4 in trial 2. Among 49 (trial 1) and 63 (trial 2) offspring from PhIP-treated dams, 9 (18.4%) and 32 (50.8%) demonstrated anophthalmia, and 1 (2.0%) and 8 (12.7%) demonstrated hydrocephaly. Five of 7 (71.4%) and 13 of 14 (92.9%) dams delivered pups with malformations in trials 1 and 2, respectively. Also, in a previous study that was carried out with the same protocol and that used the Sprague-Dawley strain of rats, anophthalmia and hydrocephaly were observed in 2 and 1 out of 175 pups, respectively, from 100 ppm PhIP-treated dams. No congenital malformations were found in control groups of the same size in either experiment. In addition to having been previously identified as a cause of carcinogenic activity, our findings suggest that PhIP is capable of causing anophthalmia in rats when administered during the gestational period.  (+info)

Anophthalmia and retinal degeneration associated with stenosis of the optic foramen in Fischer 344 rats. (3/86)

Bilateral anophthalmia was discovered in a male rat (No. 1) and unilateral anophthalmia was found in the left eye of two female rats (Nos. 2 and 3) derived from a Fischer 344 inbred colony. One male rat (No. 4), a littermate of No. 3, had externally normal eyes, but his left eye had severe retinal atrophy, which was detected by ophthalmoscopy. The eyelids in both eyes of No. 1 and in the left eyes of Nos. 2 and 3 were present. Radiography of the skull revealed small optic foramina on both sides of No. 1 and on the affected side of Nos. 2, 3, and 4. Histologically, both globes and optic nerves (ONs) of No. 1 and the left globe and ONs of Nos. 2 and 3 were completely missing. Diffuse retinal degeneration in the left globe and axonal degeneration in the left ON and the right optic tract were observed in No. 4. Dysplasia of the sphenoid bone associated with stenosis of the optic foramen was detected on the affected side of all rats. Thus, ON aplasia in anophthalmic rats and atrophic ON in a rat with retinal degeneration seem to be closely related to stenosis of the optic foramen.  (+info)

Total retinal degeneration in apparent anophthalmos of the Syrian hamster. (4/86)

Anophthalmia in the Syrian hamster was found to result from an extensive degeneration of retinal tissue and tissues derived from the retina. Eyes of affected animals were normal at the twelfth day of gestation (the average gestation period in the Syrian hamster is 16 days). However, the retina of these eyes showed rapid and extensive degeneration during the first two weeks after birth. In adults, the sclera-choroid complex was the only prominent structure of the original eye, with an occasional remnant of deteriorated lens.  (+info)

Spontaneous reversal of nystagmus in the dark. (5/86)

AIM: To report five children with horizontal jerk nystagmus in whom eye movement recordings in the dark revealed a spontaneous reversal in the direction of the nystagmus beat. Three patients were blind in one eye and were diagnosed as having a manifest latent nystagmus (MLN), and two patients had strabismus and congenital nystagmus (CN). METHODS: Eye movements were recorded using DC electro-oculography with simultaneous video recording, including infrared recording in total darkness. RESULTS: Four patients had decelerating velocity slow phase jerk nystagmus when recorded under natural lighting conditions; the fifth case had accelerating velocity and linear slow phase jerk nystagmus. Under absolute darkness, nystagmus reversed in direction of beat with a mixture of linear and decelerating velocity slow phase waveforms. One child with unilateral anophthalmos could wilfully reverse the beat direction of his nystagmus by trying to look with his blind eye in the light and dark. CONCLUSIONS: These observations support the theory that LN/MLN beat direction is determined by the "presumed" viewing eye and may be consciously controlled. The spontaneous reversal of beat direction in the dark suggests eye dominance is predetermined. Eye movement recordings identified mixed nystagmus waveforms indicating that CN (accelerating velocity slow phases) and LN/MLN (linear/decelerating velocity slow phases) coexist in these subjects.  (+info)

National study of microphthalmia, anophthalmia, and coloboma (MAC) in Scotland: investigation of genetic aetiology. (6/86)

We report an epidemiological and genetic study attempting complete ascertainment of subjects with microphthalmia, anophthalmia, and coloboma (MAC) born in Scotland during a 16 year period beginning on 1 January 1981. A total of 198 cases were confirmed giving a minimum live birth prevalence of 19 per 100 000. One hundred and twenty-two MAC cases (61.6%) from 115 different families were clinically examined and detailed pregnancy, medical, and family histories obtained. A simple, rational, and apparently robust classification of the eye phenotype was developed based on the presence or absence of a defect in closure of the optic (choroidal) fissure. A total of 85/122 (69.7%) of cases had optic fissure closure defects (OFCD), 12/122 (9.8%) had non-OFCD, and 25/122 (20.5%) had defects that were unclassifiable owing to the severity of the corneal or anterior chamber abnormality. Segregation analysis assuming single and multiple incomplete ascertainment, respectively, returned a sib recurrence risk of 6% and 10% in the whole group and 8.1% and 13.3% in the OFCD subgroup. Significant recurrence risks were found in both unilateral and bilateral disease. In four families, one parent had an OFCD, two of which were new diagnoses in asymptomatic subjects. All recurrences in first degree relatives occurred in the OFCD group with a single first cousin recurrence seen in the non-OFCD group. A total of 84/122 of the MAC cases were screened for mutations in the coding regions of PAX6, CHX10, and SIX3. No pathogenic mutations were identified in the OFCD cases. A single PAX6 homeodomain missense mutation was identified in a subject with partial aniridia that had been initially misclassified as coloboma.  (+info)

A case of growth hormone and gonadotropin deficiency associated with unilateral anophthalmia, microphallus, cryptorchidism, and mental retardation. (7/86)

We report a rare case of growth hormone and gonadotropin deficiency associated with dysmorphic features. A 16-year-old boy had left anophthalmia, microphallus, bilateral cryptorchidism, and mental retardation. His chromosomal karyotype was normal, 46, XY. Endocrinological studies revealed growth hormone and gonadotropin deficiency, attributed to hypothalamic dysfunction. Magnetic resonance imaging scan of the head showed a hypoplastic pituitary gland, decreased high intensity signals in the pituitary posterior lobe, absence of the left eye, and a hypoplastic left optic nerve with no abnormality of the pituitary stalk, corpus callosum, or septum pellucidum. Although not completely consistent with the features of septo-optic dysplasia (SOD), his condition was considered within the spectrum of SOD. Despite similarities to the Hesx1 knockout mouse, a model of human SOD, mutation analyses revealed no mutations or polymorphisms in coding regions of any exons or intron-exon boundaries of the HESX1 gene. Further genetic studies of this patient may improve understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in pituitary development.  (+info)

Delineation of an estimated 6.7 MB candidate interval for an anophthalmia gene at 3q26.33-q28 and description of the syndrome associated with visible chromosome deletions of this region. (8/86)

Anophthalmia or microphthalmia occur in approximately one in 10 children who have severe visual impairment. These eye malformations are often of unknown aetiology, but can be inherited in autosomal dominant, recessive or X-linked forms, and can also occur in association with specific chromosome abnormalities. Four children are described in the medical literature with microphthalmia or anophthalmia in association with chromosome rearrangements involving distal 3q, suggesting the presence of a micro/anophthalmia gene in this region. We have identified two further patients with micro/anophthalmia and chromosome rearrangements involving 3q26-->3q27 and identified a 6.7 MB common deleted region. Patient 1 had multiple abnormalities including bilateral anophthalmia, abnormalities of the first and second cranial nerves and partial absence of the corpus callosum. His karyotype was 46,XY,del(3)(q26.33q28). Patient 2 had right anophthalmia and left extreme microphthalmia. Her karyotype was 46,XX,del(3)(q26.33q28)t(3;7)(q28;q21.1). Both patients had intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) and strikingly similar dysmorphic facies consisting of bossed forehead, downward-slanting palpebral fissures, grooved bridge of the nose, prominent low-set ears, small down-turned mouth and small mandible. We identified BAC clones mapping to distal 3q from the ENSEMBL and NCBI Entrez databases. These BAC clones were used as fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) probes to identify the minimum deleted region common to both patients. This interval, between clones RPC11-134F2 and RPC11-132N15, was estimated to be 6.7 MB. We conclude that there is an anophthalmia locus within this interval. Candidate genes mapping to this region include Chordin and DVL3, a homologue of the Drosophila Dishevelled gene.  (+info)

N2 - Gestational vitamin A (retinol) deficiency poses a risk for ocular birth defects and blindness. We identified missense mutations in RBP4, encoding serum retinol binding protein, in three families with eye malformations of differing severity, including bilateral anophthalmia. The mutant phenotypes exhibit dominant inheritance, but incomplete penetrance. Maternal transmission significantly increases the probability of phenotypic expression. RBP normally delivers retinol from hepatic stores to peripheral tissues, including the placenta and fetal eye. The disease mutations greatly reduce retinol binding to RBP, yet paradoxically increase the ...

Transcription factor SOX-2 (Sox2) forms a trimeric complex with OCT4 on DNA and controls the expression of a number of genes involved in embryonic development such as YES1, FGF4, UTF1 and ZFP206. Defects in Sox2 are the cause of microphthalmia syndromic type 3 (MCOPS3). Microphthalmia is a clinically heterogeneous disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues (anophthalmia). In many cases, microphthalmia/anophthalmia occurs in association with syndromes that include non-ocular abnormalities. POU5F1/OCT4, Sox2, MYC/c-Myc and KLF4 are the four Yamanaka factors. When combined, these factors are sufficient to reprogram differentiated cells to an embryonic-like state designated iPS (induced pluripotent stem) cells. iPS cells exhibit the morphology and growth properties of ES cells and express ES cell marker genes ...

Three patients had microphthalmos with cyst in one orbit and contralateral congenital cystic eye, microphthalmos alone, or microphthalmos with cyst. Four eyes were examined histopathologically. The microphthalmic eye demonstrated a spectrum of anterior segment abnormalities, retinal disorganization and gliosis, and a choroidal and scleral colomboma. The cyst connected to the colobona consisted of an outer fibrovascular layer and inner gliotic neuroectodermal layer. The cyst probably originated from proliferation of neuroectodermal tissue at the edge of a persistently open embryonic fissure ...

The eye derives from three embryologic germ layers. Neuroectoderm gives rise to the optic vesicle; neural crest cells are responsible for migration to the anterior chamber of the developing eye. Ectoderm is responsible for the formation of the lens placode. Neuroectodermal and mesodermal cells participate in the closure of the optic fissure. The variety of cells and tissue types involved explains variability of phenotypic abnormalities of the eye (see Table 29-1) (Warburg, 1993). The embryonic optic fissure is formed from invagination along the inferior aspect of the optic cup and optic stalk at the 5-to-8-mm stage of gestation. This fissure allows the ingress of the hyaloid artery and egress of retinal axons through the optic nerve. In the normal eye, the embryonic optic fissure closes at 33 to 44 days after conception. If the fissure fails to fuse, a defect in the neuroectodermal and uveal tissues will be produced, forming a coloboma. The coloboma is a layer of sclera lined by maldeveloped ...

MACS conditions are likely to be caused by a disruption in the way the eye develops in the baby during early pregnancy. This can be due to an alteration in an important gene for eye development, environmental factors - such as drugs or infection in pregnancy - or a combination of the these things. However, while some families have been given a genetic diagnosis, others are no closer to knowing why their child has been affected by MACS and its related conditions.. MACS is supporting the work of specialist eye consultant and geneticist Professor Nicola Ragge, who has been responsible for the discovery of many genes linked to Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma. We are contributing towards the costs of a part-time Family Co-ordinator based at Oxford Brookes University who is responsible for recruiting and liaising with families involved in the research and keeping them up to date on progress and findings in relation to their specific cases..

Purpose : Microphthalmia, anophthalmia and coloboma (MAC spectrum) are structural ocular disorders that are sources of childhood blindness. These disorders are highly genetically heterogeneous; however, many cases remain without genetic diagnoses. Mutations in MAB21L2 have been previously associated with MAC phenotypes in human patients and confirmed in zebrafish model. This study tested the hypothesis that MAB21L family member, MAB21L1, may also participate in ocular development and contribute to disorders. Methods : We examined 276 human patients with developmental ocular conditions, including MAC spectrum anomalies. Samples were screened by Sanger Sequencing of full-length MAB21L1 coding region. To further study MAB21L1, we utilized zebrafish model to analyze expression and function in development.

The product of this gene is required for stem-cell maintenance in the central nervous system, and also regulates gene expression in the stomach. Mutations in this gene have been associated with optic nerve hypoplasia and with syndromic microphthalmia, a severe form of structural eye malformation. This gene lies within an intron of another gene called SOX2 overlapping transcript (SOX2OT). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...

Where ever he has spawned/been i think there should be a high chance that he could be spotted wandering around the area he spawned in or chased you in. This ofcourse would be ruined by the musical warning you get when hes chasing you unless he actually started chasing you so i think there could be VISUAL warnings around the places he has been wandering like smudges/cracks on the walls and floors so you know hes been wandering nearby or along your path. And for extra surprise, you could have him appear face to face with the player on the other side of a door the player just opened. This would be a tad unfair without any sort of warning so I think there should be a smoggy or decayed effect around the door to alarm the player 106 is there ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Hard palate-dermis fat composite graft for reconstruction of contracted anophthalmic socket. AU - Choi, Catherine J.. AU - Tran, Ann Q.. AU - Tse, David T.. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Purpose: To describe a novel technique of using a hard palate-dermis fat composite graft (HPDFG) for reconstruction of a contracted anophthalmic socket. Methods: Retrospective, noncomparative, interventional case series of four patients who underwent HPDFG placement by one surgeon between 2010 and 2017. Results: Six harvested HPDFGs were placed in four patients with contracted anophthalmic sockets. A harvested hard palate graft (HPG) and a dermis fat graft (DFG) were adjoined with sutures to form a composite graft. All adhesions and symblephara between the eyelid and the anterior surface of the anophthalmic socket were lysed. The HPG component was attached to the tarsal margin to vertically lengthen the eyelid. The free edge of the DFG was sutured to the cut edge of the bulbar conjunctiva to ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - PAX6 gene dosage effect in a family with congenital cataracts, aniridia, anophthalmia and central nervous system defects. AU - Glaser, Tom. AU - Jepeal, Lisa. AU - Edwards, Janice G.. AU - Young, S. Robert. AU - Favor, Jack. AU - Maas, Richard L.. PY - 1994/8. Y1 - 1994/8. N2 - The human eye malformation aniridia results from haploinsufficiency of PAX6, a paired box DNA-binding protein. To study this dosage effect, we characterized two PAX6 mutations in a family segregating aniridia and a milder syndrome consisting of congenital cataracts and late onset corneal dystrophy. The nonsense mutations, at codons 103 and 353, truncate PAX6 within the N-terminal paired and C-terminal PST domains, respectively. The wild-type PST domain activates transcription autonomously and the mutant form has partial activity. A compound heterozygote had severe craniofacial and central nervous system defects and no eyes. The pattern of malformations is similar to that in homozygous Sey mice and suggests ...
There is little information about the epidemiology of congenital eye anomalies in Ghana. We retrospectively reviewed the clinical records of 485 admissions to the paediatric eye centre of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana [‎2004-2009]‎ and 263 were diagnosed with at least one anomaly. Visual acuity was quantitatively assessed in 209 patients and 130 had some visual impairment; 49 with bilateral and 64 with unilateral blindness. The most frequent congenital anomaly overall was cataract [‎n = 44]‎. In infants, cataract was the most frequent finding [‎28/121]‎. Toddlers most frequently presented with retinoblastoma [‎10/65]‎. Glaucoma was the most frequent anomaly in preschool [‎9/39]‎ and school [‎10/38]‎ children. We conclude that avoidable causes of childhood blindness caused most congenital eye anomalies. Intensification of community-based health promotion and preventive eye care, early detection and provision of adequate resources for effective therapy could reverse ...
A glycoprotein with an apparent 340,000 mol wt (gp 340K) was isolated from rat kidney saline-soluble extract by ammonium sulfate precipitation, DE 52 ion-exchange cellulose chromatography, concanavalin A affinity column, Sephacryl S-300 gel filtration, and discontinuous polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE). The relative purity of gp 340K was examined by double immunodiffusion analysis, disc PAGE, and immunoelectrophoresis. Injection of rabbit gp 340K antiserum into pregnant rats during the organogenetic period induced abnormal embryonic development, fetal growth retardation, and embryonic death. Antiserum against the immunocomplexes isolated by immobilized protein A also produced the same embryotoxic effects. The biologic effects of the antisera appeared to be dose dependent. Defects such as anophthalmia, hydrocephaly, exencephaly, cleft palate, cleft lip, and some cardiovascular anomalies were observed. The most frequently observed anomaly was anophthalmia. Immunofluorescent localization ...
Learn about eye abnormalities in inbred C57 black mice. Ophthalmic abnormalities such as Microphthalmia and anophthalmia can often lead to ocular infections in mice.
Microphthalmos is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by reduced eye size and visual deficits of variable degrees. Sporadic and hereditary microphthalmos has been associated to heterozygous mutations in genes fundamental for eye development. Yet, many cases are idiopathic or await the identification of molecular causes. Here we show that haploinsufficiency of Meis1, a transcription factor with an evolutionary conserved expression in the embryonic trunk, brain and sensory organs, including the eye, causes microphthalmic traits and visual impairment, in adult mice. By combining the analysis of Meis1 loss-of-function and conditional Meis1 functional rescue with ChIP-seq and RNA-seq approaches we show that, in contrast to Meis1 preferential association with Hox-Pbx binding sites in the trunk, Meis1 binds to Hox/Pbx-independent sites during optic cup development. In the eye primordium, Meis1 coordinates, in a dose-dependent manner, retinal proliferation and differentiation by regulating genes ...

The Krieger Eye Institute is privileged to offer one of only 36 approved American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) Oculofacial Fellowships in the United States.
The KEI Oculofacial Fellowship will provide a diverse and high- volume clinical experience in all aspects of oculofacial surgery. This will include exposure to eyelid malpositions, lacrimal disease, orbital disease, trauma (eyelid, orbital and facial), neoplasms (eyelid, orbital and facial), Graves disease, aesthetic surgery and lasers. The fellows time will be divided between clinic and surgical duties. The fellow will have wide exposure to all aspects of oculofacial diseases and surgeries. Emphasis will be placed on developing advanced medical diagnostic and problem-solving skills, combined with an individualized approach to surgery. The fellow will be trained in multiple surgical approaches to each individual condition - understanding that no one surgical technique can be applied to all patients with a given problem. In addition, the fellow will have the unique opportunity to train in orbital applications of the Cyberknife® stereotactic radiosurgical system for non-invasive treatment of ...
