  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 14-year-old girl presented with visual impairment in the right eye as chief compliant. Funduscopy showed morning glory syndrome with nonrhegmatogenous retinal detachment in the affected eye. The retina could be reattached by vitreous surgery and perfluorocarbon. During the whole course of observation, the excavated peripapillary fundus and the optic disc moved forward and backward. This movement was involuntary, since it was independent of respiration or pulsation and could not be induced by light stimulation or jugular compression. It appeared that this movement was caused by involuntary contraction of retractor bulbi muscle or heterotopic intrascleral smooth muscle.
