Abstract

Aicardi syndrome is a rare congenital disorder with a classic triad of infantile spasms, chorioretinal lacunae, and agenesis of the corpus callosum. We report the use of fluorescein angiography and spectral domain optical coherence tomography to examine the posterior segment structures in an 8-month-old girl with Aicardi syndrome. Most of the observed features correlated with previously published histopathological findings, but inner nuclear layer cysts have not been previously described. To our knowledge, this is the first study of the tomographic and angiographic chorioretinal features in vivo.
