51 Possible Causes for Central Retinal Pigment Epithelium Changes, Relative Sparing of Fovea with Surrounding Atrophic Ring

  • Macular Dystrophy with Central Cone Involvement

    pigment epithelium and/or choroid changes, pale or atrophic peripapillary area, pale optic disk, relatively spared periphery, and slightly or moderately attenuated vessels[uniprot.org] […] area of the retina which provides detailed central vision) called drusen between the retinal pigment epithelium and the underlying choroid.[swvc.net] Subsequently, changes around the fovea develop, with a granular appearance of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE).[atlasrleye.com]

  • Familial Adenomatous Polyposis

    Congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (CHRPE). These are benign pigment changes in the retina of your eye. Dental abnormalities.[mayoclinic.org] Rarely, FAP can cause cancer to develop in your thyroid gland, central nervous system, adrenal glands, liver or other organs. Noncancerous (benign) skin tumors.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Macular Degeneration

    Funduscopic changes include the following: Changes in the retinal pigment epithelium Drusen Areas of chorioretinal atrophy Rapid vision loss, usually over days to weeks, is[msdmanuals.com] Central blind spots (scotomas) usually occur late in the disease and can sometimes become severe. Symptoms are usually bilateral.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Choroid Hemangioma

    change and pigmentation.[journalofoptometry.org] Dilated fundus exam of the left eye ( Fig. 1 ) revealed a 2DD orange-red elevated lesion superior temporal to the optic nerve head with overlying retinal pigment epithelium[journalofoptometry.org] An associated 3–4 DD central serous retinal detachment was also noted. Several ancillary tests were performed.[journalofoptometry.org]

  • Retinal Detachment

    […] progressive retinal atrophy a disease of the retinal pigmented epithelium, generally in middle-aged Labrador retrievers, Border collies, Golden retrievers, Irish setters,[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] There are pigmentary changes in the tapetal fundus, with attenuation of retinal vasculature, and atrophy of the optic disk.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Retinal also combines with opsins in the retinal cones to form the three pigments responsible for color vision. retinal absence inherited as a recessive character in foals. central[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Retinal Telangiectasia

    Fifteen of 20 initially untreated eyes with type IIA IJRT developed either central retinal pigment epithelium membranes or subretinal neovascularization with loss of vision[journals.lww.com] Vision loss was caused by progressive telangiectatic changes and intraretinal edema.[journals.lww.com]

  • North Carolina Macular Dystrophy

    Grade II exhibits central confluent drusen with or without pigmentary changes, retinal pigment epithelium atrophy, disciform scar formation or neovascularization.[ophthalmicphotography.info] Subsequently, changes around the fovea develop, with a granular appearance of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE).[atlasrleye.com] The clinical findings have been classified into different grades: In Grade I, fine drusen-like lesions at the level of the retinal pigmented epithelium are found in the central[ophthalmicphotography.info]

  • Toxic Retinopathy

    OCT (fig. 1 ) revealed subfoveal changes in the outer retina and the retinal pigment epithelium layer.[karger.com] No visual field or electrophysiology testing was performed; however, a visual field test performed by her optician was normal except for few central changes.[karger.com]
