Vitelliform macular lesions.
  1. H W Skalka


    Two patients with vitelliform macular lesions, normal EOG Arden ratios, and no family history of Best's vitelliform dystrophy are presented. Their findings are compared with those in 10 similar reported cases, and a common, nongenetic aetiology is suggested for all. The several names given to this identical fundus picture by different authors are examined and are seen to be inappropriate. A common, descriptive terminology for all such lesions is suggested.
