Colobomas of the choroid are a subset of uveal colobomas which result from disruption of the normal process of ocular development during organogenesis. This disruption causes a thinning or absence of a portion of the choroid. Choroidal colobomas may be isolated, associated with other ocular features such as microphthalmos, or associated with systemic features such as papillorenal syndrome and CHARGE syndrome.
