Abstract

A 30-year-old woman with photopsias and decreased vision was diagnosed with multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) with an atypical inflammatory subfoveal retinal pigment epithelial detachment (PED) and imaged using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) during several visits. SS-OCT imaging revealed a focal area of attenuated choriocapillaris underneath the PED. An attempt to treat the presumed macular inflammatory lesion with corticosteroids resulted in bilateral exudation consistent with central serous chorioretinopathy.
