    Phase-Variance Optical Coherence Tomographic Angiography Imaging of Choroidal Perfusion Changes Associated With Acute Posterior Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy

    This case report uses phase-variance optical coherence tomographic angiography to demonstrate transient inner choroidal flow changes associated with acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy. Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) is characterized by bilateral multiple placoid white-gray lesions of the posterior pole at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and/or choriocapillaris, which self-resolve with recovery of vision. 1 , 2 The etiology is unknown, but APMPPE has been associated with viral prodromes and vasculitis. The placoid lesions are thought to represent focal RPE inflammation or choriocapillaris ischemia based on fluorescein angiogram findings of early hypofluorescence and late ...
