Stargardt Disease

3 August 2023

Multi-modal retinal analysis (true color and FAF green) of a 51-year-old female diagnosed with Stargadt disease (genetic test positive for ABCA4). ​

True color images shows areas of RPE atrophy at the macula and multiple flecks at the posterior pole and mid periphery. ​

Fundus autofluorescence is an extremely helpful tool in this case, enhancing the identification of the RPE atrophy and flecks. ​

An interesting thing about FAF in Stargardt disease is the preserved RPE area surrounding the optic disc.
