A 42-year-old female came for routine checkup with 20/20 vision. Fundus examination revealed bilateral, numerous, yellowish-white, round, and closely spaced lesions extending from the vascular arcades till the periphery, sparing a small island of macula, suggestive of familial dominant drusen [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. Fundus autofluorescence revealed bright hyperautofluorescence of the lesions [Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d. Optical coherence tomography scans showed thickened retinal pigment epithelium-bruchs membrane complex with localized elevations [Figure 1]e and [Figure 1]f. The disease is caused by mutation in the EFEMP1 gene on short arm of chromosome 2, which encodes Fibulin-3, an extracellular matrix glycoprotein. Most patients are asymptomatic and retain good vision.[1],[2],[3]
