4 Patients of Greek ancestry had dominantly inherited cystoid macular edema. Characteristics of this syndrome include the following an early onset and prolonged course of cystoid changes in the macula, followed by atrophy of the macula in later stages. Some patients also show leakage of fluorescein from the optic disc capillaries, subnormal EOG Lp/Dt ratios, elevated rod dark adaptation thresholds, red-green and blue-yellow color deficiencies, normal ERG findings, hyperopia, peripheral pigmentary retinopathy, and vitreous opacities. Dominantly inherited cystoid macular edema is a distinct genetic trait among the dominantly inherited macular dystrophies.
