Abstract

Purpose:

To describe the clinical presentations and image findings of a patient with foveal hypoplasia.

Methods:

Observational case report of one patient. The clinical presentation of the patient was documented by fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography, and optical coherence tomography angiography.

Results:

A 55-year-old healthy white female with bilateral foveal hypoplasia without nystagmus was presented. There were no signs suggestive of ocular albinism. Absence of foveal depression was noted on both clinical examination and optical coherence tomography. Lack of foveal avascular zone was confirmed on fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography angiography.

Conclusion:

To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of findings in foveal hypoplasia examined by angio-optical coherence tomography. Optical coherence tomography angiography is an easy, rapid, and noninvasive tool that allows imaging of the retinal microvasculature without intravenous dye injection.
