Optic nerve hypoplasia, sometimes called septo-optic dysplasia or deMorsier’s syndrome, is the under-development or absence of the optic nerve combined with possible brain and endocrine abnormalities. ONH is the SINGLE leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in children. In some instances ONH includes agenesis (absence) or abnormal development of the corpus callosum and septum pellucidum. These abnormalities can be minor and not cause abnormal brain functions or the brain function can be affected ranging from mild to severe. The areas that can be affected involve gross and fine motor skills; intelligence, speech and interacting with people and in some people these abnormalities cause seizures or even death.
