We report a case of fundus albipunctatus discovered in a young patient. CASE SUMMARY: A 7.6-year-old female showed numerous small whitish-yellow flecks in the perimacular area and retinal periphery. Dark adapted 0.01 electroretinography (ERG) and dark adapted 3.0 ERG were profoundly reduced. At 26 months after the first visit, the best-corrected visual acuities were 1.0 right eye and 0.9 left eye. There were no pigmented lesions, atrophic lesions, or vascular abnormalities in the retina. Humphrey and Goldmann visual field tests were performed, but neither of the tests revealed any scotomas or other visual field defect. The number and size of characteristic numerous small whitish-yellow retinal flecks seemed almost unchanged. In spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), the subretinal hyper-reflective lesions spanned the retinal pigment epithelium and the external limiting membrane. ERG showed improved dark adapted responses (dark adapted 0.01 ERG and dark adapted 3.0 ERG) after prolonged dark adaptation (2.5 hours). No family member showed any abnormal findings. CONCLUSIONS: Fundus albipunctatus is a rare disease in Koreans. We report a case diagnosed using fundus photography, SD-OCT, visual field tests, and ERG after prolonged dark adaptation (2.5 hours).
