VILLENA-IRIGOYEN, O. et al. Optical coherence tomography in vitelliform macular dystrophy type 2. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.8, pp.501-503. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case report: We report the case of a 10-year-old boy with a progressive bilateral vitelliform macular dystrophy, and his father with terminal stage disease in both eyes; we studied the development and progression of this condition with optical coherence tomography. Discussion: Optical coherence tomography is a useful noninvasive tool that complements other diagnostic modalities and improves the follow up assessment. It provides additional information on the morphology of the lesion as well as identifying secondary changes in the adjacent retina. It also demonstrates the location of any yellowish material under the sensory retina.
