222 Possible Causes for Foveal Atrophy

  • Hypertensive Retinopathy

    In 1 eye with foveal atrophy, no change in the BCVA occurred despite the improved macular edema on OCT.[]

  • Spinocerebellar Ataxia, Type 2

    His retinal examination suggested foveal atrophy, with bilateral parafoveal pigmentary changes, and mild temporal pallor of the optic nerves ( Figure 2 ).[] Optical coherence tomography revealed foveal thinning, bilateral symmetric optically empty fovea with loss of the outer foveal reflectivity.[]

  • Familial Retinal Arterial Macroaneurysm

    atrophy 1,2 .[] atrophy, and subretinal neovascularisation.[] […] type 2 is a rare, typically bilateral condition characterised by perifoveal telangiectatic vessels, pigment clumping, crystalline deposits, reduced retinal transparency and foveal[]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa 32

    Figure 1 RP with foveal atrophy. SD-OCT shows exaggerated foveal depression, diffuse foveal thinning, and disruption of IS-OS junction.[] Foveal atrophy and IS-OS junction disruption carry the most guarded prognosis. Financial support and sponsorship Nil.[] Foveal atrophy was defined as CMT at 1-mm Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study circle less than or equal to180 µm.[]

  • Achromatopsia

    The younger patients had absent to mild foveal atrophy on OCT, and four of the six demonstrated foveal and parafoveal hyperfluorescence on FAF.[] Foveal and outer nuclear layer (ONL) thickness was measured and presence of hypoplasia determined.[] […] in 8.9% of all cases and foveal hypoplasia in 29 patients (85%).[]

  • Leber Congenital Amaurosis

  • Retinal Edema

    An eye that, in the investigator's opinion, would not benefit from resolution of macular edema such as eyes with foveal atrophy, dense pigmentary changes or dense subfoveal[]

  • Vitreoretinochoroidopathy

    Long-term follow up of the first ever reported ADVIRC proband revealed progressive foveal atrophy in both eyes 3 decades after his initial presentation.[]

  • Stargardt Disease

    In 14 out of 50 patients, foveal atrophy occurred before flecks developed.[] There was a higher prevalence of the variant p.Arg2030Gln in the cohort with foveal sparing compared to the group with foveal atrophy (6.45% vs 1.07%).[] Top row : Color fundus photographs of patient 12 showing mild foveal atrophy surrounded by parafoveal yellowish-white flecks at baseline and more marked macular atrophy surrounded[]

  • Retinitis pigmentosa 40

    Note the more severe foveal atrophy in patient MOL0501 II:3, which correlates with the lower visual acuity of this patient ( Table 2 ).[] Macular involvement is evident also on autofluorescence imaging ( B , F ) and OCT, with retinal thinning and atrophy ( D , H ).[]
