    Pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (CME). A, Color fundus photograph of an optic nerve head and macula 3 months after complex cataract surgery. A small incidental grayish-yellow adult vitelliform dystrophy lesion is present in the subfoveal region (circled). B, A mid-phase fluorescein angiography image demonstrates cystic hyperfluorescence, with a classic petaloid pattern. As is typical in eyes with pseudophakic CME, there is mild hyperfluorescence of the nasal portion of the optic nerve head. C, OCT shows cystic retinal thickening and a subfoveal vitelliform lesion. D, Following 8 weeks of topical steroidal and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory therapy, OCT shows that the CME has fully resolved.
