- Color images and fluorescein angiography from two siblings. A and B from a 2 year old male. C and D a 5 year old male. Both fellow eyes have closed funnel total retinal detachments. They have characteristics from both familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) and persistent fetal vasculature (PFV) within the NDP gene pathologies spectrum. This highlights the importance of genetic testing, prompt diagnosis and treatment.
