CONGENITAL RETINAL FOLD

Abstract

Abstract Congenital retinal fold has been reported so infrequently and on such occasions has been explained so incompletely, with so much room for questioning, that any report of a case which might suggest one further point in its development would seem to be welcome. The cases reported of this condition are so few that the presentation of almost any new case should add some new feature, or at least lead to discussion or modification of the present concept of the anomaly. After a review of some of the cases in the literature a few variations seem to present themselves in the 2 cases reported here. Subsequent study might be directed particularly along such lines. Pathologic material was obtained in many of the early cases, since the eye was enucleated for supposed glioma and only on histologic study was the true nature of the "pseudoglioma" worked out.
