- The next two photographs are of the same lesion in a 28-year-old woman. This view shows a sloping retinal mound with a radial retinal fold in the center. This is not a typical meridional fold for it stops short of the ora serrata and there is no dentate process. The upper temporal ora serrata and pars plana are well shown and peripheral cystoid degeneration is present posterior to the ora.
