Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study examines different clinical parameters and the occurrence of macular degeneration in a series of 110 patients with angioid streaks of the fundus. Among the parameters considered were: age of the patient at the time of ocular diagnosis, associated systemic disease, optic nerve drusen, peau d'orange appearance in the fundus, number of radiating angioid streaks as well as their length, width, and distance from the fovea. Statistically significant correlations were found between the occurrence of macular degeneration (of the exudative hemorrhagic type) and the following: angioid streak length, distance from the fovea, and the diffuse type or 'cracked egg-shell' fundus appearance.
