Best’s disease is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by bilateral vitelliform macular lesions that progress through several stages throughout life. The authors describe a 20-month-old child with hereditary Best’s disease inherited from his father. To their knowledge, this is the youngest child to be diagnosed as having Best’s disease using photographic documentation.
