Figure 3a
Figures 3a-3b. Fluorescein angiogram showed punctate areas of hyperfluorescence in the parafoveal region of both eyes. This hyperfluorescence was consistent with window defects due to abnormalities in the region of the macula.

Figure 4a
Figures 4a-4c. Supratemporally, in the peripheral retina of the right eye, there was an exudative process surrounding an aneurysm. In this area, the angiogram demonstrated capillary nonperfusion as well as saccular and beadlike dilatations of the retinal vessels. Dilatation of the surrounding capillary bed was also seen. The aneurysm showed early staining and late leakage. The aneurysm had no prominent feeder or drainage vessels.
