    A family with a benign form of fleck retina is described. Seven out of 10 siblings were affected. The consanguinious parents were both normal. The fundi were massively invaded by lesions which appeared as discrete, bright white or yellow flecks situated well behind the retinal blood vessels. The macula was always free. Fluorescein studies revealed a healthy macula and retinal and choroidal blood vessels. The relationship of this benign form to the other forms of fleck retina is discussed.
