Abstract

Four children are described who had hypoplastic optic nerves, absent septa pellucida, and various types of endocrinological dysfunction. The importance is stressed of recognizing this syndrome and of following up the growth of the patient, because now that human growth hormone is available the short stature of some blind children may be susceptible to treatment.
