Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Background/Purpose: To present a novel case of paracentral acute middle maculopathy in association with birdshot chorioretinopathy. Methods: Case report. Results: A patient presented with decreased vision and findings of uveitis, vasculitis and a paracentral scotoma. Multimodal imaging was consistent with paracentral acute middle maculopathy in the setting of a multifocal chorioretinopathy and a laboratory workup was consistent with birdshot chorioretinopathy. Conclusion: Paracentral acute middle maculopathy is a newly described entity that may be associated with birdshot chorioretinopathy, and clinicians should be aware of it when patients present with new paracentral scotoma and signs of intraocular inflammation.
