Foveal Hypoplasia in Aniridia (Colour-Image, OCT)

Retina -> Distrofias y Degeneraciones Hereditarias -> Retina Sensorial
24 years of age, male, VA OD 0.2, OS 0.4, increased intraocular pressure. A case of foveal hypoplasia associated with aniridia with anatomic and functional changes using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is described. This case highlights the importance of SD-OCT in identifying the retinal laminar abnormalities in foveal hypoplasia. The patient showed a complete aniridia, foveal hypoplasia, congenital cataract and increased intraocular pressure. We found no thickened cornea, nystagmus, ptosis, strabismus, corneal pannus, corneal vascularization, or optic disc anomalies. In general aniridia is phenotyically and genetically heterogeneous.
