  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 54-year-old female developed acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) in her right eye during the course of treatment for chronic peripheral uveitis in the left eye since 8 months before. Acute attacks of APMPPE in the left eye developed 6 weeks and 4 months each after the attack in the right eye.

Her general condition and laboratory tests were normal except for abnormally high hemoaggluti-nation inhibition test for rubella. Fluorescein an-gio graphic findings indicated the primary lesion of APMPPE to be the circulatory disturbances of the choriocapillaris.
