A 30-year-old woman with photopsias and decreased vision was diagnosed with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) with an atypical inflammatory subfoveal retinal pigment epithelial detachment (PED) and imaged using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) during several visits. SS-OCT imaging revealed a focal area of attenuated choriocapillaris underneath the PED. An attempt to treat the presumed macular inflammatory lesion with corticosteroids resulted in bilateral exudation consistent with central serous chorioretinopathy...

PURPOSE: To present a case report of MEWDS following an intradermal influenza vaccination. METHODS: Review of the clinical, laboratory, photographic, and angiographic records of a patient with MEWDS. RESULTS: 27-year-old female that presented to our clinic with photopsias OD. These symptoms began 2 weeks following an influenza intradermal vaccination. Fundus examination and diagnostic testing were consistent with MEWDS. CONCLUSION: While rare, MEWDS can occur following influenza vaccination...

PURPOSE: To describe features characteristic of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) using adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AOSLO). METHODS: Six women (seven eyes) who presented with MEWDS between June 2014 and April 2017 underwent ophthalmologic examinations and multimodal imaging including infrared, AOSLO, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography. RESULTS: Bright hyperreflective lesions on AOSLO throughout the course of MEWDS could be correlated to the hyperreflective dots of foveal granularity on infrared imaging without apparent corresponding changes on spectral domain optical coherence tomography...

PURPOSE: To investigate the association between multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) and Epstein-Barr (EB) virus infection. METHODS: A prospective, consecutive case series study was performed in patients with the characteristic findings of MEWDS. Patients received EB viral-specific antibody serologic tests. RESULTS: Five cases of MEWDS who had prodromal flu-like symptoms were enrolled, comprising 2 women and 3 men with a mean age of 34...

PURPOSE: To describe multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS)-related foveal granularity features on different imaging modalities. METHODS: Clinical and multi-imaging files from five patients affected by MEWDS were reviewed. Each image set included: blue fundus autofluorescence (BAF), near-infrared fundus autofluorescence (NIR-FAF), spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), fluorescein (FA), and indocyanine green (ICGA) angiography. Foveal granularity features were analyzed and described for each technique at baseline and follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) is an inflammatory disease that can be associated with choroidalneovascularisation (CNV). However, few studies in the literature have described the occurrence of MEWDS in association with CNV. This paper discusses whether CNV can trigger MEWDS in a predisposed eye. METHODS: A retrospective multicentric case series of six eyes in six patients with acute onset of MEWDS and evidence of previous CNV was conducted between January 2015 and January 2017...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To compare patterns of choroidal hypoperfusion in white dot syndromes (WDS) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients with WDS were imaged with either the Zeiss AngioPlex OCT Angiography (Carl Zeiss AG, Oberkochen, Germany) or the AngioVue OCT Angiography (Optovue, Fremont, CA) from February to November 2016. Four patients with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE), birdshot chorioretinopathy (BCR), presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS), and multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) were selected...

PURPOSE: To describe the multimodal imaging findings of transient subretinal deposits occurring in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS). METHODS: The multimodal imaging characteristics of transient subretinal deposits occurring in MEWDS were investigated with ultra-widefield color and fundus autofluorescence, cross-sectional and en-face optical coherence tomography (OCT), en face OCT-angiography, and quantitative autofluorescence. RESULTS: A 28-year-old woman presented with photopsia and temporal visual field loss in her right eye...

In response to the article by Parodi et al. about choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with Multiple Evanescent White Dot Syndrome (MEWDS) treated with intravitreal Ranibizumab. This article highlights the efficacy of intravitreal Ranibizumab in the treatment of CNV associated with MEWDS. In our experience, CNV is mostly associated with MEWDS in cases of a wider inflammatory spectrum such as overlapping syndrome with multifocal choroiditis (MFC) or punctuate inner choroidopathy (PIC). The whole pattern of the case presented in the article is compatible with the diagnosis of PIC, meaning that this case described an overlapping between MEWDS and PIC diagnoses...

PURPOSE: To present a recurrent case of conforming focal choroidal excavation (FCE) following multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) in a 25-year-old woman. METHODS: Following spontaneous MEWDS sings resolution our patient noted a recurrent decrease in vision. Repeated OCT revealed elevation and mild disruption of RPE layer at fovea without previous angiographic MEWDS signs. At this time, short-term systemic steroid therapy was started and visual acuity became normal...

PURPOSE: To describe atypical cases of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) associated with foveal exudation, increased choroidal thickness, and secondary Type 2 (subretinal) neovascularization. METHODS: Four cases of atypical MEWDS were studied at a retina referral center. Patients underwent evaluation with multimodal retinal imaging, including fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, spectral-domain and enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (OCT)...

PURPOSE: To report the clinical case of a 64-year-old man who developed several features of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) but with central visual loss that persisted because of significant structural macular disease. METHODS: A case report was generated by a review of the clinical course and imaging investigations of one patient, along with review of the literature. RESULTS: A 64-year-old man noted decreased vision in the right eye for 2 weeks, associated with a central scotoma with shimmering, gauze effect of the vision...

PURPOSE: To perform an analysis of optical coherence tomography (OCT) abnormalities in patients with MEWDS, during the acute and recovery stages, using enhanced depth imaging-OCT (EDI-OCT). METHODS: A retrospective case series of five patients with MEWDS was included. EDI-OCT imaging was evaluated to detect retinal and choroidal features. RESULTS: In the acute phase, focal impairment of the ellipsoid zone and external limiting membrane, hyperreflective dots in the inner choroid, and full-thickness increase of the choroidal profile were observed in the affected eye; disappearance of these findings and restoration of the choroidal thickness (p = 0...

BACKGROUND: To report a patient with angioid streaks (ASs) and coincident multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) who developed choroidal neovascularization (CNV). CASE PRESENTATION: A 20-year-old woman presented with reduced vision (20/100) in her left eye (LE). Based on a complete ophthalmologic examination the patient was diagnosed with ASs and coincident MEWDS. Two weeks later best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) improved up to 20/25 and the MEWDS findings almost disappeared...
