Malattia Leventinese




Characteristically small round white spots (drusen) involving the posterior pole of the eye, including the areas of the macula and optic disc, appear in early adult life.
Failing vision usually developed considerably later than the ophthalmologic change. Both forms of dominant drusen (malattia Leventinese and Doyne retinal degeneration) are characterized by slowly progressive loss of central visual acuity.
However, the clinical course may change to one of very rapid progression and severe visual loss if choroidal neovascularization invades the subretinal space.
Dantas et al. (2002) found that photodynamic therapy using verteporfin closed the neovascular membrane and prevented severe visual loss. They proposed that photodynamic therapy be considered as a possible treatment in patients with malattia Leventinese who develop classic choroidal neovascularization.
