To report a rare case with an unusual appearance of the fundus in both eyes.
Eye Clinic, Nicosia General Hospital, Nicosia, Cyprus.
An asymptomatic 44-year-old woman was referred to the medical retina department due to an unusual appearance of the fundus in both eyes . Best-corrected visual acuity was 10/10 in both eyes. Intraocular pressure was within normal limits bilaterally. Fundus examination revealed multiple drusen at the posterior pole of both eyes. Further investigation with optical coherence tomography and fluorescein angiography were reccommended. Also full blood tests were ordered.
Optical coherence tomography revealed retinal pigment epithelium changes and fluorescein angiography showed early staining corresponding to drusen. The patient was referred to a nephrologist for further evaluation.
The clinical appearance , the absence of any symptoms, and the characteristic findings on fluorescein angiography were compatible with basal laminar drusen. All the patients with the above condition should be evaluated by a nephrologist . Regular follow ups by an ophthalmologist were also reccommended.
