We report Heidelberg Retina Tomography (HRT) findings in a case of bilateral acute macular neuroretinopathy in a 22-year-old man. In addition to fundus photography, fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography, and visual field testing, HRT scans of the macula were performed early in the disease and at a follow up of 2 months. We found typical paracentral scotomata in visual field testing corresponding to sharply delineated, hyporeflective areas of the macula as visualized in HRT II scans. Those lesions were almost invisible on regular fundus photographs. Angiography results were unremarkable. The lesion size decreased over time. The visibility of the lesions was markedly enhanced by HRT scans, thus the diagnosis and follow up of acute macular neuroretinopathy could be facilitated by this non-invasive imaging technique.
