NIH Rare Diseases:47 Coloboma of the optic nerve is a congenital eye abnormality in which the optic nerve (which carries images of what the eye sees to the brain) is incompletely formed. The condition may occur in one or both eyes. The degree of visual impairment varies widely depending on the severity and structures involved. Serous detachments of the retina commonly occur in affected people, with a high risk for extensive retinal detachment. The coloboma may be associated with other features, such as a small eye (microphthalmia) with or without a cyst; small cornea (microcornea); or coloboma of other eye structures. Although the condition is present from birth, diagnosis may be delayed since the coloboma is inside the eye and not visible by simple inspection. Coloboma of the optic nerve may occur sporadically, may be due to a genetic mutation and be inherited, or may occur as a feature of an underlying syndrome or other genetic condition. There is no treatment to correct an optic nerve coloboma, but low vision aids may be helpful for some people. Last updated: 10/28/2015
MalaCards based summary: Coloboma of Optic Nerve, also known as coloboma of optic disc, is related to papillorenal syndrome and cavitary optic disc anomalies, and has symptoms including strabismus, visual impairment and optic atrophy. An important gene associated with Coloboma of Optic Nerve is PAX6 (Paired Box 6). Affiliated tissues include eye, colon and retina.
CDC:2 Of cancers affecting both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, but it doesn’t have to be. Screening can find precancerous polyps—abnormal growths in the colon or rectum—so they can be removed before turning into cancer. Screening also helps find colorectal cancer at an early stage, when treatment often leads to a cure.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Coloboma of optic nerve: An ocular defect that is due to malclosure of the fetal intraocular fissure affecting the optic nerve head. In some affected individuals, it appears as enlargement of the physiologic cup with severely affected eyes showing huge cavities at the site of the disk.
