Abstract

Purpose:

To report the clinical findings of the youngest confirmed case of acute macular neuroretinopathy to the best of our knowledge.

Methods:

A 9-year-old patient describing a paracentral scotoma with a normal clinical examination and normal fluorescein angiography.

Results:

Initial fundus examination was unremarkable. Fluorescein angiography findings showed no abnormalities but scotoma was confirmed using Amsler grid. Optical coherence tomography showed a parafoveal hyperreflective band in the outer layers. Subsequent optical coherence tomography showed resolution of the pathology.

Conclusion:

Acute macular neuroretinopathy is a rare condition usually presented as paracentral scotomas. Optical coherence tomography and Amsler grid testing can be used for diagnosis and to monitor findings on follow-up until resolution.
