Comments and Conclusions • Vitelliform type lesions in a young patient support a diagnosis of Best vitelliform macular dystrophy or Best disease. • In questionable cases, Electrooculography (EOG) and genetic testing are suggested to confirm or deny the diagnosis. • Best disease, like other disorders with choriodal neovascularization, appears to be successfully treated with
Case 4: Topcon 3D OCT Radial Scans OS
Case 4: Topcon 3D OCT Radial Scans OS In contrast, SD OCT sectIons through the macula in the left eye reveal a large fibroglial or fibrovascular scar causing the overlying retinal layers to be elevated.
Case 4: Topcon 3D OCT Color Fundus Image OS The lesion in the patient’s left eye is further progressed and a "scrambled egg" lesion is apparent. In this stage, disruption of the photoreceptors results in reduced VA.
Case 4: Topcon 3D OCT Color Fundus Image OD Case 4: A 14-year-old girl was presented in a previous Retina Revealed issue (RR 22) that addressed her temporal retinal detachment in her right eye only. Her BCVA measured 20/20 OD and 20/50. lOPs were 24 mmHg OU. The lesion in her right
