The article describes a case of abnormal looking optic disc (dysplastic) associated with serous macular detachment similar to what is described in cases of optic pit. However clinically as well as on fluorescein angiography, no optic pit or coloboma could be identified. Gas injection, prone positioning and laser along the temporal border of the disc could correct the macular detachment.
