Pigmentary maculopathy can occur in the context of various inherited and acquired diseases. Anterior segment dysgenesis arises due to developmental anomalies and may be associated with systemic disease, as in Rieger syndrome.

Case report

A 49-year-old woman presented with longstanding reduction in vision, evidence of anterior segment dysgenesis, and multiple discrete pigmented lesions throughout the macula bilaterally. Electroretinographic findings were consistent with severe macular dysfunction. Gene array analysis did not reveal any chromosomal imbalances or other specific abnormalities.


This is a unique case of bilateral pigmentary maculopathy and anterior segment dysgenesis, with clinical findings that are not characteristic of previously reported disease.
