Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Findings in Punctate Inner Choroidopathy.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) is an inflammatory chorioretinopathy characterized by multiple punctate, hypopigmented fundus lesions. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is an emerging imaging modality that enables high-resolution visualization of the retinal and choroidal vasculature. The objective of this study is to examine the OCTA findings in PIC.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: Observational, retrospective review of five patients with PIC.
RESULTS: OCTA revealed several features in PIC lesions: distinctly visible choroidal neovascular membranes when present, as well as flow voids within the choroid and choriocapillaris layers that correspond with hypocyanescent lesions on indocyanine green angiography.
CONCLUSION: OCTA may serve as a useful adjunctive imaging modality in diagnosing and monitoring patients with PIC. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2017;48:786-792.].
