Spontaneous Regression of Subretinal Exudate in Coats Disease

Arch Ophthalmol. 2006;124(8):1208-1209. doi:10.1001/archopht.124.8.1208

An 8-year-old girl was seen in consultation after an abnormal pupillary reflex was noted. The patient was an otherwise healthy child without significant medical history. Visual acuity was 20/20 bilaterally, results of the anterior segment examination were unremarkable, and the right fundus was normal. Fundus examination of the left eye revealed a large, dense, hard exudate between the disc and the macula, as well as scattered exudate nasal and superior to the disc (Figure 1A). Additionally, several discrete vascular lesions were noted in the temporal retina (Figure 1B and Figure 2).
