August's Case of The Month

Maternally inherited diabetes and deafness (MIDD) simulates a macular pattern dystrophy due to accumulation of hyperautofluorescent subretinal yellow vitelliform material. The multiple islands of macular atrophy, best seen on fundus autofluorescence, are classic for this disorder. It is caused by an A3243G mutation in mitochondrial DNA, and is responsible for up to several percent of people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Check out the full set of images in the Retina Rocks collection, dating back to 2012, to see the progression of the parafoveal macular atrophy.
