Case report: A 45-year-old man was referred to us with a scotoma sensation in his right visual field. Funduscopic examination showed aneurysmal dilatations with lipid exudation in the superior and inferior temporal retinal arcades in his right eye. Angiofluorography showed vascular dilatations and late dye leakage. Discussion: Lebers disease is a primary retinal vasculopathy characterized by several aneurysms associated with intraretinal lipid exudates. Visual compromise depends on macular involvement by the exudates. Differential diagnosis must be established with other primary retinal vasculopathies and secondary aneurysms. Treatment consists of argon laser photocoagulation of the aneurysms.
