Martini glass sign

Dr Craig Hacking and Dr Ian Bickle et al.

The 'Martini glass' sign describes the appearance of the globe in persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV).

On MRI the retrolenticular tissue characteristic of this condition has a triangular shape, like that of a martini glass appearing as low T2 low signal against the normal high T2 signal of the globe.1
