- This lattice lesion in a 44-year-old man shows an atrophic retinal hole surrounded by discrete yellowish and pigmented areas. These have been caused by secondary pigment migration and proliferation in the retinal pigment epithelium. There is a small doughnut like elevation of the retina between the edge of the hole and the line of pigment. The lesion and the hole have remained exactly the same for seven years.
