Don’t Miss This! Red Flags in the Pediatric Eye Exam: Blurred Disc Margins

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Evaluating a patient with blurred optic disc margins, particularly a child, and establishing a diagnosis can be a demanding task. We aim to review the differential diagnosis of blurred disc margins, identify the clinical characteristics of a swollen optic disc, discuss imaging modalities used in the evaluation of the optic nerve head as tools for formulating a diagnosis, and identify red flags that may indicate a serious disorder.
