Abstract

An 8-year-old girl with normal visual acuity was found to have bilateral macular lesions on retinal examination. Ocular coherence tomography showed discrete perifoveal inner retinal deposits that characterize the "white dot fovea." This report documents the clinical presentation of white dot fovea in early childhood, suggesting that this condition may represent an isolated foveal dystrophy.
