Fleck retina in Kjellin's syndrome

Am J Ophthalmol. 1985 Jan 15;99(1):45-50. doi: 10.1016/s0002-9394(14)75865-9.


We examined members of two families with Kjellin's syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by spastic paraparesis, dementia, and macular changes. Although the retinal lesions resemble the flecks of fundus flavimaculatus by ophthalmoscopy, they appear distinct from previously reported retinal flecks by fluorescein angiography.
