We report a congenital neurosensory retinal detachment associated with an optic nerve coloboma with subsequent spontaneous reattachment. This represents the earliest reported case of such a clinical situation. An observation period is recommended for infants with this clinical course to allow for the opportunity of spontaneous reattachment.

    Objective: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a disease of the eye caused by disorganized growth of retinal blood vessels resulting in scarring and retinal detachment. All preterm babies are at high risk for ROP, and very low birth weight is an additional risk factor. An increased incidence of...
