Unilateral ocular duplication

Synonyms: Triophthalmia | Triopia | Unilateral diplophthalmia | Unilateral diplophthalmos

A rare developmental defect during embryogenesis characterized by unilateral duplication of an eye which may appear as a synophthalmic eye in a single orbit or as two separate unilateral eyes each in a separate orbit. The malformation is always associated with other anomalies of the central nervous system (such as porencephaly meningocele or arachnoidal cysts) and with craniofacial abnormalities. A proboscis is often found. Clinically moderate mental retardation and epilepsy are typical.
