septooptic dysplasia

a congenital syndrome of hypoplasia of the optic disc with other ocular abnormalities, absence of the septum pellucidum, and hypopituitarism leading to growth deficiency. Also called de Morsier's syndrome.

septo optic dysplasia

A rare autosomal recessive condition (OMIM:182230) characterised by optic nerve hypoplasia, absence of the corpus callosum, and hypoplasia of the pituitary gland with panhypopopituitarism.

Molecular pathology
Defects in HESX1, a DNA-binding transcription factor required for the normal development of the forebrain, eyes and other anterior structures, cause septo optic dysplasia.
