To presented optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) findings in a case with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE)
Twenty-six-year-old male patient had been complaining of decreased vision in both eyes. Visual acuity was 0.2 in the right and 0.7 in the left eye.
Fundus examination revealed yellow-white subretinal lesions involving the macula in bilateral posterior pole. Fluorescein angiography showed hypo-fluorescent lesions in early and hyperflourescent lesions in the late phase. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) done in the acute phase showed hypofluorescent areas at choriocapillar level in both eyes. After steroid treatment, visual acuity was found 10/10 and earlier lesions in OCT-A were found to be reduced.
OCT-A is a non-invasive imaging technique that can be used in the diagnosis and follow up of APMPPE.
