Types of Fundus Changes in the Posterior Pole
Ophthalmoscopic findings observed in chorioretinal atrophy in eyes with pathologic myopia include four kinds of changes (Table 3.1):
Tessellated fundus, in which the choroidal vessels can be seen through the retina and the optic disc appears crescent shaped
Yellowish-white and the ill-defined diffuse chorioretinal atrophy
Grayish-white and well-defined patchy chorioretinal atrophy
Although these changes associated with posterior staphyloma are common, some eyes with pathologic pyopia exhibit no such changes.
