Abstract

Background: To report the presence of transient peripapillary serous detachments in multiple evanescent white dot syndrome. Methods: Retrospective case series. Results: Four eyes of four patients diagnosed with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome presented with peripapillary serous detachments. Diagnosis was based on clinical presentation, fundus findings, and angiographic findings. All 4 were female with age ranges between 24 and 40 years and presented with photopsias, an enlarged scotoma contiguous with the blind spot, and chorioretinal white dots in the posterior pole with characteristic angiographic features. All of the serous detachments resolved or were greatly reduced concomitantly with the resolution of the patient's other clinical symptoms and fundus findings. Conclusion: The authors report peripapillary serous detachments as a previously unreported manifestation of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome. These seem to be self limited with concurrent resolution with the rest of the patient's symptoms.
