Cuticular drusen, also known as basal laminar drusen, are a type of familial drusen characterized by many clumps of tiny, extramacular drusen. They are strongly associated with the Tyr402His variant of the complement factor H (CFH) gene. Acuity often remains good as long at the drusen remain outside of the fovea.
