The right eye of a 9-year-old white boy with Best’s vitelliform macular dystrophy had an intact egg-yolk lesion and a retinal pigment epithelial defect superiorly, suggesting an early pseudohypopyon stage. The disruptive phase of the left eye showed subretinal hemorrhages, a “signet ring,” and a subretinal neovascular membrane.
