To assess choroidal involvement in renal amyloidosis.
Six patients (12 eyes) with renal amyloidosis underwent a complete ophthalmic examination that included measurement of the best-correct visual acuity, ophthalmoscopy, fluorescein angiography, and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA).
The age ranged from 36 to 70 years. Visual acuity ranged from 20/200 to 20/20. Results of fundus examination and fluorescein angiography were unremarkable in all eyes. ICGA showed choroidal lesions in 100% of the examined eyes. Findings included staining along choroidal vessels in10 eyes, pinpoints in 10 eyes, zones of hyperfluorescence of variable size in 6 eyes, and zones of hypofluorescence in 4 eyes.
ICGA commonly revealed subclinical, abnormal, fairly typical findings, and might, therefore, be helpful in diagnosing renal amyloidosis.
