Autosomal recessive Stargardt disease is a juvenile-onset macular dystrophy associated with rapid central visual impairment, progressive bilateral atrophy of the foveal retinal pigment epithelium, and the frequent appearance of yellowish flecks around the macula and/or in the central and near-peripheral areas of the retina.
