Macular dysplasia and pigmented paravenous retino-choroidal atrophy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Pigmented paravenous retino-choroidal atrophy (PPRCA) is a rare retinal disease characterized by bilateral patches of pigment and areas of chorioretinal atrophy distributed along the veins. The authors present a 21-year-old male with pigmented paravenous retinochoroidal atrophy and unilateral macular dysplasia. To their knowledge, this is the second reported case of macular involvement. They believe that such association is not occasional, but may be suggestive of a variable expressivity of the disease.
