    Correlation between optical coherence tomography and autofluorescence in acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy

    Purpose To report a case of bilateral acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) evaluated by optical coherence tomography (OCT), fundus autofluorescence (AF) and microperimetry, both in the acute phase and after resolution of symptoms. Methods Complete ophthalmological evaluation, including fluorescein angiography, OCT, AF, and microperimetry upon presentation and 1 month later, after lesions have subsided. An attempt to correlate the findings on presentation and changes after resolution is performed using the results of these new investigational techniques. Results APMPPE showed hyperreflectance in OCT at the level of the outer retinal layers, without increase in retinal thickness. AF revealed early ...
