- This lattice lesion in a 36-year-old woman has remained unchanged over a period of 13 years. It shows a moderate snailtrack feature with discrete yellow dots visible on the surface of the lesion and especially along the posterior border. One of these can be well seen just below the lesion superimposed over the dark shadow of the scleral indentation. The exact nature of these yellow dots is still not entirely clear.
