Fenestrated sheen macular dystrophy. A new autosomal dominant maculopathy

Acta Ophthalmol (Copenh). 1981 Oct;59(5):683-8. doi: 10.1111/j.1755-3768.1981.tb08734.x.


A family is described showing small, grouped, red fenestrations of the macular region surrounding an intact foveolar reflex. The disease affected a father and his 2 daughters, and seems to be an autosomal dominant maculopathy. No functional abnormalities were disclosed and fluorescein angiography was normal. This family may represent the second family described with fenestrated sheen macular dystrophy.
