List of terms related to Congenital cystic eye


Congenital cystic eye (CCE) is a rare ocular malformation where the eye fails to develop correctly in utero and is replaced by benign, fluid-filled tissue. Its incidence is unknown, due to the very small number of cases reported. An audit by Duke-Elder of the medical literature in English from 1880 to 1963 discovered only 28 cases.

Embryologically, the defect is thought to occur around day 35 of gestation, when the vesicle fails to invaginate. Dysgenesis of the vesicle later in development may result in coloboma, a separate and less severe malformation of the ocular structures.

CCE is almost always unilateral, but at least 2 cases of bilateral involvement have been described. Patients may also present with cutaneous appendages attached to the skin surrounding the eyes.

Treatment of CCE is usually by enucleation, followed by insertion of an ocular implant and prosthesis.
