TWO YEARS ago, a 37-year-old woman had peripheral light flashes while hospitalized for a viral illness. Although peripheral field loss occurred at that time, her visual acuity was not affected. Since then, her retinal lesions have been stable (Figure 1), as have been the abnormalities in her peripheral visual field (Figure 2). Her multifocal electroretinographic responses remain abnormal within the lesions but physiologic elsewhere. Her current visual acuity is 20/25 OU with minimal correction.
