Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy- APMPPE is an acquired idiopathic inlammatory disease of the chorioretina. This case report presents a typical clinical manifestation of a very rare condition: a twenty ive-year old female complained of a sudden bilateral decrease of vision. She reported lu-like symptoms and taking antibiotics therapy. Fundus examination revealed numerous discrete yellow-white lesions at posterior pole involving the macula. After a period of 7 days oral prednisone treatment she was completely recovered. Usage of steroids is recommended for treating APMPPE in cases where macula is involved and in recurrent cases.
