Abstract

Background:

Acute macular neuroretinopathy is a rare disease that with the help of multimodal imaging is being diagnosed more frequently.

Methods:

An atypical case is presented and followed by multimodal imaging.

Results:

A typical acute macular neuroretinopathy lesion was seen on biomicroscopic examination and spectral domain optical coherence tomography examination. However, near-infrared imaging revealed a lack of the characteristic finding along with a relative afferent pupillary defect and a widespread depressed multifocal electroretinogram which has not been reported previously.

Conclusion:

This patient exhibits photoreceptor and outer retinal findings commonly described in acute macular neuroretinopathy lesion without classic near-infrared findings. This case may represent a severe form of acute macular neuroretinopathy.
