    RPE disruption and hyper-transmission are early signs of secondary CNV with punctate inner choroidopathy in structure-OCT

    Purpose: To study whether retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) disruption and choroidal hyper-transmission on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) are signs of inflammatory neovascularization (CNV) in punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC). Methods: This is a prospective cohort study. Seventeen patients (18 eyes) were diagnosed as PIC without CNV at baseline. Changes of morphological characteristics including choroidal hyper-transmission, hypo-transmission, RPE disruption, and ellipsoid zone (EZ) damage on SD-OCT were observed and recorded at baseline, 4, 8 and 12 weeks, respectively. The occurrence of CNV was detected by OCTA at each visit. Fisher's exact test was used to compare the relationship with each ...
