Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the value of ocular coherence tomography (OCT) concerning diagnosis and pathogenesis of acute macular neuroretinopathy. METHODS: A 33-year old woman complained of sudden onset of central scotomas in her right eye because of acute macular neuroretinopathy. We performed a direct ophthalmoscopy, a visual field testing, a fluorescein angiography (FA) a multifocal ERG (mf-ERG) and an OCT. RESULTS: We found typical paracentral scotoma in visual field testing, a normal FA and mf-ERG in her right eye. In OCT there was a band of higher reflectivity (115 microm) overlying an intact band corresponding to the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)/ choriocapillaris complex. Retinal thickness was within the normal range. CONCLUSION: OCT can be an additional valuable tool in acute macular neuroretinopathy as it is a disease with discrete pathology and often normal results in other diagnostic tests.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
