Abstract

Purpose: To report the association of optic nerve head (ONH) drusen with Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (BVMD). Methods: Chart review. Patients: Five patients from 3 families. Results: Multimodal imaging and ophthalmic examination demonstrated findings consistent with ONH drusen, in association with BVMD, in 5 patients. Conclusion: We report the association of BVMD with ONH drusen in 5 patients. This combination has previously been reported only once. We recommend that patients with a diagnosis of BVMD undergo autofluorescence and ultrasound imaging of the optic nerve to help facilitate this diagnosis, as some ONH drusen can be buried.
