This study aims to describe a rare case of a pair of siblings of age nine and five years who presented with optic disc abnormality and choroiditis in association with type 1 diabetes. Both the siblings were born to non-consanguineous marriage and had normal developmental history. Both were type 1 diabetic. Both were observed to have microphthalmos, microcornea, alternating esotropia and high myopia. Both had optic disc abnormalities along with macular scars. Both were treated with low vision aids. The study demonstrates the need of better screening programme to prevent such late diagnosis.
