Case 10-1- Adult Pseudovitelliform Macular Dystrophy
A 56-year-old man had pseudovitelliform macular dystrophy. In the left eye, his visual acuity was 20/30, Examination of the fundus (A) showed a yellow vitelliform lesion in the central macula.
A vertical image acquired through fixation (B) demonstrated a well-circumscribed elevation of the retinal pigment epithelium above a moderately reflective region that appeared to have a defined posterior boundary. The foveal contour was altered due to the displacement of photoreceptors by the lesion.
