My granddaughter had a sonagram at 27 weeks into her pregnancy. The Dr said that the septum pellucidum was absent and his diagnosis was Septo-Optic Dysplasia.

What other test, if any, should be done before the baby is born? What test should be done after the baby is born.

All the information I can find sound very grim. Is there anyone who has gone through this or is going through this that can offer any information.

Thank you

  • Hello....my Name Is Laura And I Have A Son With Septo Optic Dysplasia.I Didnt Find Out That He Had This Until He Was 5 Months Old...I Thought He Had A "lazy Eye" So I Took Him To See His Dr. And He Told Me He Was Blind In His Right Eye. He Said The Nerve From The Eye To The Brain Didnt Develop All The Way. So He Said He Should Have An M.r.i Done. Well I Then Found Out That He Too Was Missing His Septum Pellucidum. My Son Is Almost 3 Now. And They Just Did Another Mri . They Called Me Today And Told Me That He Did He Schizencephaly. 80 To 90% Of Babies Missing Their Septum Pellucidums, Have This Very Rare Disorder Also. It Is When There Is A Little Piece Of Fluid Where Brian Should Be. You Should Really Do Some Research On Schizencephaly. It Will Tell You Alot About Septo Optic Dysplasia. I Hope I Have Helped Somehow. I Would Love To Talk To You.
