Case 8-39 continued
Slit-lamp biomicroscopy (D) of the left eye showed sort drusen in the macula with a small elevated retinal tuft in the fovea associated with the clinical diagnosis of a sub-foveal neovascular membrane- The visual acuity in this eve was 20/30. Fluorescein angiography (E) showed hv-perfluorescence surrounding the fovea consistent with drusen, and mottled h v per fluorescence in a peripapillary distribution-
OCT examination (P) of this eve revealed a small cyst j j directly in the fovea associated with a focal attachment of the posterior hyaloid membrane. The reflection from the retinal pigment epithelium and choriocapillaris appeared thickened directly beneath the fovea consistent with a sub-foveal neo vascular membrane.
