Abstract

Purpose:

To describe ocular findings consistent with acute exudative polymorphous vitelliform maculopathy in a healthy 34-year-old man.

Methods:

Observational case report of a patient presenting with blurred vision in the left eye greater than the right eye.

Results:

Funduscopic examination and fluorescein angiography were consistent with acute exudative vitelliform maculopathy, a rare exudative macular disorder. Five months after presentation, the patient was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma.

Conclusion:

A case is reported in a young man with no diagnosis of primary neoplasm at the time of presentation, and no other symptoms overall, who was later diagnosed with a metastatic malignancy.
