BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Stargardt disease is a type of juvenile-onset macular dystrophy. The clinical presentation is characterized by macular atrophy and the presence of lipofuscin storage. The aim of this study was to investigate a possible correlation between different ABCA4 gene mutations and the autofluorescence pattern. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty patients with Stargardt disease were examined for ABCA4 gene mutations and were administered fundus autofluorescence examinations. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
