Clin Ophthalmol. 2014 Mar 12;8:537-42. doi: 10.2147/OPTH.S55623. eCollection 2014.


Best's vitelliform macular dystrophy complicated with choroidal neovascularization is rare in children. We report three children from a Malay family of five siblings with Best's vitelliform macular dystrophy, in which two of them subsequently developed choroidal neovascularization. The possible pathogenesis of this rare condition is described and highlighted in this report.
