To describe the fundus autofluorescence photographic pattern in a case of deferoxamine retinopathy.Methods:
Observational case report.Results:
A 91-year-old woman receiving intravenous deferoxamine treatment presented with a history of deteriorating vision in both eyes. Autofluorescence photography revealed well circumscribed areas of hyperautofluorescence that correlated with areas of pigmentation shown by color photography. Deferoxamine retinopathy was diagnosed.Conclusion:
Fundus autofluorescence photography is a noninvasive imaging method for early detection of deferoxamine retinopathy and can be used to monitor the status of the macula in patients at risk for this toxicity.
