Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description any structural anomaly of the ventral groove formed by invagination of the optic cup and its stalk by vascular mesenchyme from which the hyaloid vessels develop; a transient gap in the ventral margin of the developing optic cup that eventually closes to complete the eye wall inferiorly and enclose the hyaloid vessels in a canal in the optic stalk (Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, MP_0012534)
