Abstract

Angioid streaks were observed in a 31-year-old man with abetalipoproteinemia. Angioid streaks have now been described in hereditary spherocytosis, beta thalassemia, alpha thalassemia, sickle cell anemia, and acanthocytosis secondary to abetalipoproteinemia and hypobetalipoproteinemia. The nature of the association of angioid streaks and structural defects of hemoglobin and the red blood cell is not understood.
