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.[1] Its ocular association includes high myopia, associated macular coloboma,[2] and poor vision. It may be a component of frontonasal dysplasia,[3] and it differs from morning glory syndrome, where the optic disc is abnormal with radial vasculature and associated glial tissue.[4] The optic disc coloboma is associated with retinochoroidal coloboma and an excavated optic disc.[5]
