Abstract

This manuscript reports a rare association of the development of acute macular neu-roretinopathy (AMN) after administration of an influenza vaccination. A 42-year-old white female presented with a 2-week history of black spots and a paracentral scotoma in the right eye after receiving a seasonal influenza vaccination. Findings on multimodal imaging were classic for AMN, and these findings improved but did not fully resolve 4 weeks after initial presentation with observation alone. Although a febrile illness or the use of oral contraceptives is most commonly associated with the development of AMN, it is important for clinicians to also consider influenza vaccination as a possible etiology.
