  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 45-year-old male presented with night blindness since 6 months before. His corrected visual acuity was 0.2 right and 0.7 left. No crystalline deposits were present in the cornea. The corneal endothelial cell density was normal. Sparkling yellowish-white small spots were scattered in and around the posterior fundus. Fluorescein angiography showed numerous hypofluorescent patches from the early phase on. Crystalline spots showed neither hyper- nor hypofluorescence. Indocyanine green (ICG) angiography showed hypofluorescence corresponding to hypofluorescent areas seen by fluorescein angiography. These ICG findings seemed to show the presence of atrophy in the retinal pigment epithelium and choriocapil-laris as underlying lesions in this clinical entity.
