Macular Telangiectasia

Clinical Features:

Type 1 MacTel is typically unilateral and features aneurysmal dilatations of capillaries within the macula. Surrounding exudates are common (Fig. 11.2.1). Type 2 MacTel is typically bilateral and features a loss of the temporal juxtafoveal retinal transparency followed by the development of ectatic capillaries in this region (Fig. 11.2.2). Over time, RPE hyperplasia and pigment deposition may occur along with crystal deposits (Fig. 11.2.3).
