To demonstrate advantege of fundus autofluorescence (FAF) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in a two patients with different fundoscopic findings of pigmented paravenous chorioretinal atrophy (PPCRA).
We present two cases of PPCRA examinatted in University Eye Clinic Zvezdara, Belgrade
Case 1: A 23-year-old female referred to our Clinic due to unspecific near visual disturbance. Her visual acuity was 1.0 both eyes with no corrections. Fundoscopic examination reveled choroidal atrophy like patches along retinal veins in both eyes. We made FAF as well as OCT examination. Case 2: 14-years-old boy had a routine ophthalmological examination and funduscopic showed chorioretinal atrophy along the paravenous area in both eyes with bone spicule pigment clumping. FAF revealed geographic hypofluorescence along the paravenous and supranasal retinal areas. Linear hyperfluorescence was noted, which comparatively surrounded the hypofluorescence in the peripheral paravenous distribution. Spectral domain OCT displayed thinning of the retina in the atrophic areas revealed full thickness thinning.
FAF and OCT can easily demonstrate the distribution of deficit and dysfunction of RPE
