  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 17-year-old male presented with visual field defect in his right eye of 10 days' duration. Visual acuity was normal in both eyes. There were no abnormal findings in the anterior segment, optic media or the fundus. The right eye showed temporal visual field defect. Multifocal electroretinogram (MERG) showed decreased responses in the same area. Fluorescein angiography showed filling delay around the disc. Electrooculogram (EOG) showed decreased light rise and hyperosmolarity response. He was diagnosed as acute zonal occult outer retinopathy (AZOOR). The visual field and MERG findings spontaneously recovered after 7 months. This case was interpreted as belonging to group 1 by Gass manifesting disorders in the retinal pigment epithelium and the choroid.
