    Macular choroidal thickness in patients with pseudoxanthoma elasticum measured by enhanced-depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

    Background/objectives To analyze macular choroidal thickness in patients with pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) by enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). Subjects/methods This is a prospective cross-sectional study. Sixty-eight eyes of 34 patients with PXE and 68 normal eyes of 34 controls were included to study the macular area with enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT). Eyes with PXE were classified in three groups: those without choroidal neovascularization (CNV) or chorioretinal macular atrophy macular (Group 1); those with active CNV (Group 2) and those with macular atrophy secondary to inactive CNV (Group 3). Results Mean subfoveal choroidal ...
