Purposes: To describe the long-term follow-up of a patient affected by Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum (PXE) and acquired macular vitelliform lesions in both eyes. Material and methods: Case report Results: We reported the 9-year follow-up of a patient affected by PXE. We described the onset and the resolution of the vitelliform macular lesions which lasted 5 years. The vitelliform lesion appeared almost simultaneously in both eyes with an initial increase in size, even though asymmetrical. We detected the intraretinal migration of hyper-reflective foci in both eyes during the follow-up. Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) occurred in her right eye during the follow-up. Visual acuity decreased from 20/20 to 20/32 in left eye; from 20/20 to 20/100 in her right eye. Conclusions: we reported the natural history of acquired vitelliform lesion in PXE-related retinopathy describing the Intraretinal hyperreflective foci migration.
