  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

There are two schools concerning the location of fundus lesion involved in acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE). One considers the retinal pigment epithelium as the primarily affected structure, while the other main-tains that the choriocapillaris is primarily affected with secondary involvement of the retinal pigment epithelium.

We observed a 29-year-old male with typical features of APM PPE associated with uvcitis in his left eye.
