1. High-Definition Optical Coherence Tomography Features in Vitelliform Macular Dystrophy

    Purpose: To correlate high-definition optical coherence tomography (HD OCT) and fundus examination findings at different phases of vitelliform macular dystrophy and to determine the anatomic location of vitelliform material.Design: Prospective, noncomparative, observational case series.Methods: A complete ophthalmologic examination, including fundus biomicroscopy and HD OCT, was performed in 11 consecutive patients with a diagnosis of vitelliform macular dystrophy.Results: Using HD OCT, we were able to demonstrate for the first time the presence of previtelliform lesions, characterized by a thicker layer between the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and the inner segment and outer segment (IS/OS) interface. At this ...
