Abstract

SORSBY FUNDUS dystrophy (SFD) is an autosomal dominant disorder that is characterized by bilateral loss of central vision secondary to choroidal neovascularization and/or pigment epithelial atrophy in the macula, with onset of visual symptoms usually in the fourth or fifth decade. Drusenlike changes may occur, with impaired dark adaptation and abnormal electroretinographic results.
