Abstract

Purpose:

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is used to assess vascular abnormality in advanced stage vitelliform macular dystrophy (VMD2).

Methods:

Multimodal imaging including spectral domain (SD) OCT, autofluorescence (AF), fluorescein (FA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) as well as optical coherence tomography angiography were performed.

Patients:

Two eyes in one young patient with diagnosed vitelliform macular dystrophy were investigated for progressive visual dysfunction.

Results:

Optical coherence tomography angiography identified neovascular formation within the outer retina and the choriocapillaris respectively while all other imaging methods were inconclusive.

Conclusion:

Optical coherence tomography angiography was superior to conventional angiography in the detection of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) in advanced retinal disorders like vitelliform macular dystrophy.
