Congenital Retinal Fold (Ablatio Falciformis Congenita)
The term congenital retinal fold (ablatio falciformis congenita) refers to an allegedly congenital malformation which is characterized by the presence of a raised retinal fold extending radially from the posterior pole to the fundus periphery. Since the end of the 19th century this condition has been the subject of a considerable number of ophthalmological publications. Of several hypotheses on its pathogenesis, that advanced by Ida Mann (1935) is the most widely known.
