Congenital Hypertrophy of the Retinal Pigment Epithelium: Enhanced-Depth Imaging Optical Coherence Tomography in 18 Cases – Corrected Proof

Objective: To describe the imaging characteristics of congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (CHRPE).Design: Retrospective, observational case series.Participants: Eighteen eyes of 18 patients with CHRPE.Methods: Review of chart, fundus photography, ultrasonography, fundus autofluorescence, infrared reflectance (IR) imaging, and enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT).Main Outcome Measures: Features of CHRPE as analyzed by EDI-OCT.Results: The mean age at diagnosis was 48 years (range, 13ā€“73 years). There were 5 males and 13 females, and 17 Caucasian and 1 African American patients. The mean best-corrected visual acuity was 20/22 (range, 20/20ā€“20/40). The CHRPE was located in the retinal periphery (nĀ = 16) with (Read more...)
