Multifocal vitelliform dystrophy (MVD) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous retinal disease that presents as bilateral multiple yellow lesions within the posterior pole, which is caused by subretinal accumulation of vitelliform material. The age of onset is highly variable, ranging from five to 59 years old, and common symptoms include blurry vision and central metamorphopsia. Previously reported cases of multifocal vitelliform lesions have been described as raised yellow lesions located near the macula, along the retinal vascular arcades or adjacent to the optic nerve.
