Reticular Pattern Dystrophy of the Retina: A Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Analysis – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To analyze the outer retinal and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) features of reticular pattern dystrophy of the retina using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT).Design: Retrospective observational case series.Methods: Consecutive patients with reticular pattern dystrophy of the retina underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination, including assessment of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), fundus biomicroscopy, fluorescein angiography (FA), and SDOCT.Results: Twenty-two eyes of 13 patients (6 men, 7 women, mean age 68.6 ± 14.5 years) were included. In the foveal area, the RPE layer appeared normal in 45.5% of eyes, while small RPE elevations and RPE bumps were detected in 31.8% and 22.7% (Read more...)
