PARDO-MUNOZ, M.A.; CABREJAS-MARTINEZ, L.  and  LOSADA-BAYO, D.. Pseudo-vitelliform maculopathy and bilateral choroidal folds: differential diagnosis. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.6, pp.187-190. ISSN 0365-6691.

Clinical case: A 64 year old woman. Best corrected acuity right eye (RE) 0.5 and 0.7 left eye (LE). Bilateral pseudophakia. No inflammatory signs. Normal IOP. RE fundus showed a rounded, yellow and excessive subfoveal deposit with positive autofluorescence. Multiple equatorial drusen and choroidal folds in both eyes. Fluorescein angiography of RE showed early foveal hypofluorescence and delayed hyperluorescence. Optical coherence tomography revealed a hiperreflective deposit over the foveal epithelium pigment. Visual fields, ocular ultrasounds and electrooculograms were normal. Non-specific alterations in colour tests. Conclusión: Vitelliform maculopathy and choroidal folds are very rare diseases and, exceptionally, appear together.

Keywords : Vitelliform maculopathy; Choroidal folds; Macular degeneration; Drusen.
