BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the clinical course and distinctive features of different white dot syndromes (WDS) in patients attending the Ophthalmology Department, Medical University of Warsaw in the years 1995-2015. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty-two (62) patients (43 females and 19 males), aged 18 to 77 years, referred with a WDS were included in this prospective study, with observation period ranging from 5 months to 16 years. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmological examination and multimodal imaging studies...

PURPOSE: To characterize lesions of acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) by multimodal imaging including adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AOSLO). METHODS: We included patients with APMPPE at different stages of evolution of the placoid lesions. Color fundus photography, spectral domain optical coherence tomography, infrared reflectance, fundus autofluorescence, and AOSLO images were obtained and registered to correlate microstructural changes...

PURPOSE: To investigate choroidal involvement in acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE). METHODS: A retrospective observational case series using multimodal imaging including optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography. RESULTS: Five patients with APMPPE were included. In most acute lesions, OCT angiography revealed outer retinal and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) hyperreflective lesions with attenuated OCT signal in the underlying choroid, but careful examination allowed us to identify a single lesion with decreased choriocapillaris flow outside the signal attenuation...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) is an immune-mediated chorioretinal disease that causes acute visual symptoms with characteristic ophthalmoscopic findings. Neurological complications are rarely reported in the literature. Here we report two new cases of APMPPE that presented with neurological manifestations, one of which was associated with peripheral neuropathy, which has not been described before. METHODS: A retrospective database review of all patients with a diagnosis of APMPPE was performed...

PURPOSE: To determine what retinal layer is primarily involved in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome compared with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy using multimodal imaging including indocyanine green angiography. METHODS: Color fundus photographs and fluorescein angiography, ICGA and spectral domain optical coherence tomography images of two typical acute cases, one of acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy and one of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome, were assessed and compared...

INTRODUCTION: VKH disease is a chronic, bilateral, granulomatous panuveitis with potential involvement of neurological, auditory and integumentary systems. On the other hand, APMPPE is believed to be an immune-driven chorioretinal vascular disease characterized by multifocal, flat, grey-white placoid lesions at the level of the RPE. We describe a case with overlapping figures of both conditions. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 19-year-old female presented with unilateral blurry vision and was found to have clinical and IVFA findings consistent with APMPPE...

PURPOSE: To quantify the external limiting membrane (ELM) disruption and photoreceptor volume changes in eyes with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) at the acute and resolution phases. METHODS: Retrospective study of 10 eyes of 5 patients with APMPPE. Intact ELM and the Bruch's membrane were manually traced using ImageJ software and their lengths from each scan of the Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography macular volume were summed...

Few cases have been reported describing choroidal vasculature in acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography. We report choroidal vasculature changes in an APMPPE patient with the clinical course characterized by OCT angiography. A 39-year-old female was referred to us for bilateral multiple white spots in bilateral fundus. The best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in the right eye and 20/50 in the left eye. Multiple yellowish-white placoid lesions were observed in bilateral fundus, and fluorescein angiography showed a "block early, stain late" pattern at the placoid lesions characteristic of APMPPE...

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) provides noninvasive in vivo vascular imaging of the retina and choriocapillaris. To highlight OCTA utility, the authors align structural changes and their resolution with functional outcome. The authors present a case of acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) and sequential changes during transition to inactive disease. In the acute phase, altered flow and nonperfusion were seen in defined islands of choriocapillaris. Over time, progressive reperfusion was observed and accompanied clinical resolution and functional visual restoration...

This article reports the case of a 32-year-old female patient who presented with severe spasmodically occurring retrobulbar pain, headaches and light sensitivity. The neurological examination confirmed cephalalgia but no evidence of other neurological symptoms was found. Ophthalmoscopy revealed yellowish patchy lightened spots in the middle periphery. Fluorescein angiography (FLA) and indocyanine green angiography (ICGA) revealed findings typical for acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE)...

PURPOSE: To detect choriocapillaris changes by enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI-OCT) in areas of choriocapillaris hypoperfusion visualized on indocyanine green angiography. METHODS: Combined indocyanine green angiography and EDI-OCT from patients diagnosed with inflammatory choriocapillaris hypoperfusion were retrospectively analyzed. The EDI-OCTs were compared with indocyanine green angiography to detect choriocapillaris changes suggestive of choriocapillaris hypoperfusion in both active stage (AS) and inactive stage of the disease...

PURPOSE: To quantitatively examine changes in choroidal circulation hemodynamics in patients with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE). METHODS: Retrospective observational case series. Five eyes of 3 APMPPE patients were included. In all APMPPE eyes, laser speckle flowgraphy was conducted to evaluate the mean blur rate (MBR), a quantitative index of relative blood flow velocity. The changes in MBR at the initial visit and after 3 and 6 months were statistically analyzed...

PURPOSE: Presentation of a case report of a unilateral ampiginous choroiditis. METHODS: This is an observational case report. RESULTS: A 70-year-old woman was referred to us with unilateral scattered chorioretinal lesions. The multifocal pattern of the lesions and the angiographic features led to the diagnosis of ampiginous choroiditis. CONCLUSION: Ampiginous choroiditis is a primary inflammatory choriocapillaropathy with characteristics of both acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy and serpiginous choroiditis...
