Fundus flavimaculatus: Clinical images and review of literature
Stargardt disease (STGD) or fundus flavimaculatus is a progressive form of juvenile macular degeneration with considerable
clinical and genetic heterogeneity. It may be considered a syndromal cone-rod dystrophy due to overlapping clinical features such
as loss of color vision and photophobia in some patients. Here, we report a case of fundus flavimaculatus in a 32-year-old female
and discuss the literature pertaining to it. Clinical data including medical history, findings on physical examination and local
examination were suggestive of fundus flavimaculatus. Best-corrected visual acuity of the patient remained constant at 6/12 for
1 year with the patient being on 3-month follow-up. No particular or specific treatment is available for this fundus dystrophy and
frequent follow-ups may help diagnose and manage associated choroidal neovascular membrane at the earliest. The only modality
is available in the form of low vision aids for advanced disease.
