Marcus Gunn jaw-winking syndrome (MGJWS) is a rare form of congenital blepharoptosis and one of the congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders (CCDD). In addition, morning glory disc anomaly (MGDA) is a congenital optic disc anomaly of unknown etiology. The present report is the first to describe an association between MGJWS and MGDA in an otherwise healthy 7-year-old boy. He also had counting finger vision, anisometropia, esotropia, and monocular elevation deficiency in the same eye. In the literature, both MGJWS and MGDA have been reported to be associated with Duane retraction syndrome, a form of CCDD.
