A nine-and-one-half month old boy with poor visual function was found to have bilaterally small optic discs. He subsequently demonstrated a retarded growth pattern. A series of photographs revealing part of the spectrum of optic disc hypoplasia are included. Associated structural and endocrine defects as well as various opinions concerning the appropriate approach to these patients are discussed.
