    Optical Coherence Tomography Findings in Tamoxifen Retinopathy

    Purpose To describe optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in two cases of typical tamoxifen retinopathy. Design Observational cases report. Methods Two patients with tamoxifen retinopathy were imaged with fluorescein angiography and OCT 3. Results Fluorescein angiography showed foveolar hyperfluorescence. OCT revealed a foveolar cystoid space with focal disruption of the photoreceptor line. There was no evidence of macular edema or thickening. Conclusions In both cases, OCT findings are not consistent with previous descriptions of tamoxifen retinopathy, based on fundus examination and fluorescein angiography, which include a description of macular edema. This new imaging suggests that tamoxifen maculopathy may include a ...
