PINOS, J. et al. Central serous corioretinopathy in adult onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.8, pp.505-508. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case report: The clinical case of a 30 year-old male patient with a bilateral and symmetric adult-onset foveomacular vitelliform dystrophy is presented. The simultaneous onset of a central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) with multiple white dots in the proximity of the temporal vascular arcades is documented. Fluorescein angiography showed a combined alteration of both types of photoreceptors, and the acute lesion of the CSCR at the posterior pole of the eye. Discussion: Adult-Onset Foveomacular Vitelliform Dystrophy is a hereditary condition which results in an alteration of the posterior pole of the eye, but is not usually associated with any acute complications. The onset of a CSCR, as seen in this case, is unusual.
