Foveal Pseudoectopıa: Report of A Case and Review of the Literature

Emrullah Beyazyıldız, Mehmet Çıtırık


A 17-year old woman presented to the ophthalmology department with low visual acuity in the right eye. The best-corrected visual acuity was 1/20 in the right eye and 20/20 in the left. Right fovea was observed in the upper temporal quadrant of posterior pole. Fluorescein angiography (FA) of right eye showed superior to a line drawn horizontally of central fovea through the center of the optic disc. Ambliyopia and incyclotropia were observed in right eye. Increased latency (P: 139 ms) and decreased amplitude (A: 6.88 µv) was detected on Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) testing for right eye. L-dopa, insulin, and clonidine tests were performed for short stature, and confirmed the diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency. Bagolini and Maddox double rod tests confirmed incyclotropia of the globe. Herein, we presented a case of unilateral idiopathic foveal pseudoectopia associated with incyclotropia and growth hormone deficiency which has not been previously described.
