Background

Enhanced S-cone syndrome (ESCS) is an autosomal recessive retinal dystrophy associated with a NR2E3 mutation, causing night blindness, decreased visual acuity, and visual field defects [1]. Clinically, ESCS is characterized by annular pigmentation along the vascular arcades and macular abnormalities [2]. Best vitelliform macular dystrophy (BVMD) is also an autosomal but dominant hereditary retinal dystrophy associated with the BEST1 gene, which affects central vision with a relatively good prognosis and presents macular egg yolk yellow lesions [3].
