Abstract

Background: Adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy is characterized by a solitary, oval. slightly elevated, yellowish subretinal lesion of the fovea. We examined a patient with adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy with stellate retinal folds by optical coherence tomography and scanning laser ophthalomoscopy. Case: A 58-year-old Japanese woman with a complaint of decreased vision inher right eye was diagnosed as having adult-onset foveomacular vitelliformdystrophy. Observations: Ophthalmoscopic examination revealed a yellowish lesion of one-third disc diameter in size at the fovea in the right eye. Fluorescein angiography demonstrated an irregular block of choroidal fluorescence corresponding to the yellowish lesion, which was surrounded by stellate retinal folds. Optical coherence tomography images showed a steep elevation of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) as a focally protruded reflective band overan optically clear space. Scanning laser ophthalmoscopy provided morphologic enhancement in the specifically affected layers of the macula. Using an argon green laser, band-shaped bright reflexes were seen in the right fovea. The helium-neon laser revealed a bright patch corresponding to the yellowish lesion over the fovea, which was surrounded by stellate retinal folds. The diode laser revealed a bright patch corresponding to the yellowish lesion. Conclusion: The stellate retinal folds of this patient were considered to be caused by the steep elevation of the RPE with an extracellular accumulation of the vitelliform deposits.
