Dry Age-related Macular Degeneration with Choroidal Nevus
92-year-old male presents with dry AMD and choroidal nevus in the right eye. CLARUS images provide both true color and high resolution, which are important in cases where subtle color differences can inform the diagnosis.
Clinical findings: When evaluating pigmented choroidal lesions, melanoma should always be on the list of differentials.
Although rare, choroidal melanomas can have devastating effects on the patient, so early detection is important. One of the risk factors for malignant transformation is orange pigment (lipofuscin).
