Aim: To present a rare clinico-pathological case of persistent fetal vasculature with colobomatous cystic optic disc in a micro-ophthalmic eye. Method: A case report. Results: An 8 year boy presented to the tertiary eye care center was diagnosed as micro-ophthalmos, microcornea, inferior iris coloboma with suspected retinochoroidal coloboma in right eye (OD). Ultrasound B scan of OD was done which confirmed the above findings along with the presence of membranous echoes attached to the disc. On MRI of right orbit, retinal detachment with colobomatous cyst in the posterior aspect of the eyeball was present. OD was enucleated with parenteral consent and silicon ball and socket reconstruction was done. We thereafter examined the enucleated eyeball grossly as well as by histopathological examination. Herein, we present the pathological features of a case of persistent fetal vasculature (PFV) supported by gross and microscopic examination with a special emphasis on the presence of colobomatous cystic optic disc in a micro-ophthalmic eye. Conclusion: This is one of the rare associations of PFV making this original report a unique one.
