Summary
Septo-optic dysplasia, also known as de Morsier syndrome, is a rare congenital malformation syndrome featuring underdevelopment of the optic nerve, pituitary gland dysfunction, and absence of the septum pellucidum. Two of these features need to be present for a clinical diagnosis, with only 30% of patients presenting with all three.
