  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We observed two cases of acute posterior mul-tifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APN4P-PE). Both were females and were 32 and 41 years of age respectively.

The acute stage was characterized by the pre-sence of numerous and disseminated presence of yellowish-white spotty lesions located in the deeper layer of the posterior fundus. The condi-tion involved both eyes and was associated with minimum to moderate visual loss. The spotty lesions disappeared leaving slight derangement of the retinal pigment after 6 to 10 weeks. Their visual acuity recovered completely.
