Colobome chorioretinien bilateral: à propos d’un cas

Seydou Diallo, Seydou Bakayoko, Brainima Coulibaly, Mohamed Kole Sidibe, Nouhoum Guirou


Chorioretinian coloboma often raises clinical issues leading sometimes to some confusion. Nevertheless, diagnosis must be as accurate as possible for several reasons: the association of some congenital anomalies of the papilla with other neurologic, endocrine and systemic disorders as well as issues in differential diagnosis between it and other ophthalmic disorders. We report a clinical case of a 6 year old child, the first boy in a family with 2 children, with bilateral papillar coloboma and without other associated malformations. Patient?s history: normal birth and updated immunisation status. His father and his 4-year-old sister underwent ophthalmic examination which was unremakable. However his mother had diverge strabismus in the right eye.
