      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.

    2. Choroidal Thickness and En Face Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging in Autoimmune Retinopathy

      Choroidal Thickness and En Face Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging in Autoimmune Retinopathy

      A 57-year-old white woman developed autoimmune retinopathy (AIR) in both eyes associated with bilateral autoimmune sensorineural hearing loss. Laboratory testing was positive for 68kDa (heat-shock protein) and 136kDa (human interstitial retinoid-binding protein). Extensive cancer screening was negative. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography enhanced depth imaging demonstrated a markedly thickened choroid in both eyes. En face imaging showed a distinctive pattern of granular hyperreflective foveal dots. The concurrent sensorineural hearing loss was thought to be of autoimmune origin and also responded to immunosuppressive treatment. Eyes with non-paraneoplastic, seropositive AIR may have associated increased choroidal thickness. Audiology testing should be considered.
