Chorioretinal Inflammatory Diseases

Case 9-1 continued

Clinical Summary

The left eye also had cystoid macular edema (D) associated with a visual acuity of 20/80, improving to 20/60 through a pinhole. Pars plana exudate was observed in a snow-bank configuration on slit-lamp examination. Fluorescein angiography (E) showed late leakage in the central macula consistent witli cystoid macular edema.

Optical Coherence Tomography

A vertical OCT image (F) through fixation demonstrated a collection of subretinal fluid just beneath the fovea. A large cyst was noted inferior to the center which involved only the outer retinal layers. The high reflectivity observed from the superficial retinal layers suggested preferential fluid accumulation in the deeper retinal tissue. The retinal thickness in the fovea was 480 ¬°iitl
