    Widefield en face optical coherence tomography to quantify the extent of paracentral acute middle maculopathy

    Paracentral acute middle maculopathy (PAMM) has been described as a hyperreflective band or plaque-like region on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) at the level of the inner nuclear layer (INL), which is straddled by the intermediate and deep retinal capillary plexuses. 1,2 PAMM has been reported to cause eccentric wedge-shaped lesions that extend to the edge of the foveal avascular zone. 3 Although these lesions resolve over time, patients are left with irreversible INL atrophy, resulting in a permanent paracentral visual field defect.
