Abstract

Background: Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is an autosomal dominant disease with facial muscles weakness and scapular weakness. Ophthalmic manifestations may include retinal vasculopathy similar to Coats’ disease. We report a case of Coatslike response in FSHD which has remained stable with no exudation.

Case Presentation: A 7-years old female with Coats’- like response associated with FSHD. Fundus photos show mild tortuosity of posterior pole vasculature. Fundus angiography shows avascularity of peripheral temporal retina with telangiectatic vessels and aneurysmal dilatations of vessels at the edge of avascular retina without neovascularization or exudates.

Discussion and Conclusion: This case demonstrates a Coats-like response in a patient with FSHD that has remained stable and has not required any treatment. Other reports have demonstrated peripheral/macular exudative retinopathy, peripheral neovascularization and neovascular glaucoma.
