Abstract

Congenital cystic eye (anophthalmia with cyst) is an extremely rare anomaly discovered at birth with few reported cases in the literature, resulting from partial or complete failure during invagination of the primary optic vesicle during fetal development. Herein we present the radiographic, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging findings of a unique case of congenital cystic eye associated with dermal appendages and advanced intracranial congenital anomalies in a 3-month-old boy.
