A 43-year-old female, presented with right eye light perception, normal anterior segment, and axial length of 25.04 mm. Fundus showed staphylomatous excavation with sharp margins, normal optic disc [Figure 1], normal retinal vasculature, and extensive pigmentary changes of the surrounding retina.

Peripapillary staphyloma Curtins type 3 is the rarest (1.5%) type. Its ocular association includes high myopia, associated macular coloboma, and poor vision. It may be a component of frontonasal dysplasia, and it differs from morning glory syndrome, where the optic disc is abnormal with radial vasculature and associated glial tissue. The optic disc coloboma is associated with retinochoroidal coloboma and an excavated optic disc.
